Neon - a collaboration with The Plucky Knitter Yarns!

I am so excited to share with you my latest news and pattern!
I have been working with The Plucky Knitter yarns in a collaborative design since the end of last year.  Pattern and yarn will be sold as kits tomorrow Monday February 4th on The Plucky Knitter's website, and the pattern will be also available as a Ravelry download in its own this week.
Scroll down to see the amazing color options Sarah has ready for us!

So I proudly present you my Neon.

Spring is just around the corner. What better way to welcome the change in seasons than with a darling little cardigan! I’m very excited to introduce this lovely little sweater designed with the amazing yarn by The Plucky Knitter. It will be just right for the surprises that spring weather always brings. Neon is designed in Plucky Sweater and features a top down construction, using the contiguous method. That means that there is no need to worry about seaming!
Neon has just enough textured stitch pattern to keep this charming cardigan interesting for the more advanced knitter, but is not too complex for an advanced beginner. The all over textured lace pattern, called the tulle stitch, is simple to work, but gives the finished sweater a very complex look. Plucky Sweater, with its subtle shading, is the perfect yarn for Neon, giving fantastic stitch definition and allowing your stitches to pop.
I believe my patterns are complimentary to women of all sizes. With just enough waist shaping and some deep ribbing, this sweet sweater will help to awaken your feminine side. Knit it in an intensely bright color to create a modern gem, or achieve a soft delicate heirloom piece by using a gentle neutral.

This sweater is here to help you prepare for those cooler transitional days as we gracefully move into Spring. Wear it over your favorite pair of jeans with a pair of sexy heels or slip it on over a cute summer dress. Neon will help break the chill of office air conditioning and will keep you cozy under the stars at a late night dinner.

Get ready to pamper your feminine side with a luxurious yarn and a charming design. We hope you love this pairing as much as we do.
