It’s the trend that’s been popping up everywhere – from home decor to clothing it’s a unique concept that has turned into a bright and bold style statement. As some may know, yarn has jumped on this trend too and these free patterns are just some of the ways you can use neon yarn in the most stylish and effective way.
Neon Lights Afghan – If you’re not sure whether to make a really “loud” afghan or a more subdued crochet afghan, the Neon Lights Afghan is the perfect compromise. This easy crochet pattern can be made in just about any kind of yarn and stitches up quickly. The neutral yarn makes up most of this pattern and the added neon strips make the afghan “pop.” Neon yarn makes this crochet afghan pattern fun to try and rewarding to finish. It’s geometric, bright, and casual all at the same time.
Bold and Beautiful Ripple – Ready for bold design? This pattern will let you express yourself by crocheting in multiple bright colors along with some neon yarn as well. Neon yarn looks excellent next to black and even the red yarn in this pattern. For kids that love color, crochet this afghan to add a burst of fresh and bright color into their room. I can guarantee this pattern will brighten anyone’s day.
Neon Retro Pillow Cover – Plain and boring pillow? No more! This crochet pillow cover is bound to liven up your couch and living area in no time. Once again black yarn makes the neon colors brighter, but I could see this pattern being done in natural taupe and cream colored yarn with the neon accents. It’s really up to you and your style.
Summer Socks – With just a hint of neon at the toe, heel, and trim, these knit neon socks are perfect for all ages. This is an easy way to try out a little bit of neon yarn without going crazy.
Lemon Lime Chevron Afghan – Crocheters take note, this knitted afghan has the right idea in terms of color scheme. Using seven different colors, you can achieve this gorgeous and modern look. Shades of gray and cream plus a row of neon yellow row make this knitted afghan the perfect baby blanket for the modern mom or an afghan to throw over the back of your couch.
Lazy Daisy Pillow – This is another knitted pattern that is just super cute for a little girls’ room. I love that the embroidered neon yarn flowers and squiggles can be embroidered anywhere on the pillow. Fill the front of this knitted pillow with cute designs as shown or let your mind wander and create something different. The bright purple pillow can be knitted in any color too and the neon accents will still look wonderful.
