Hot Colors for Summer Snowflakes

Neon-600-mitts

In a gorgeous fair isle sweater, or as a pop of color at a hem or cuff, the impact of stranded knitting is undeniable. It turns the ordinary into art. The real secret of color-work is that it is incredibly fun! I love watching the pattern take shape row after row. It’s also easier than you might think, well within reach of the enthusiastic beginner. If you can knit, purl, increase, and decrease, you’re ready.
