Neon Done Right: Just Add White!

Bright pop colors have increased in popularity over the past few years. It's always fun to incorporate neons into your yarn crafting, but how can you create a bright project that's neutral enough for everyday use? The answer is simple: pair your neons with a neutral border! I like to use white for a clean, modern look. To illustrate this, I've made a few granny squares in the newest bright shades of Vanna's Choice: Radiant Orange, Radiant Yellow, and Radiant Lime.

As you can see, the squares are super fun and vibrant, but maybe they're a touch too fluorescent for an everyday afghan.

Here, I've added a border in the Buttermilk shade of Martha Stewart CraftsTM/MC Extra Soft Wool Blend. The creamy white breaks up the neon and softens the brightness. I can absolutely see myself making an entire afghan out of this color combination!
