Did you know certain yarns glow in reaction to ultraviolet light? 

Evin Bail O’Keeffe has designed 12 knitting patterns to bring out the best in ultraviolet-reactive yarns. 

This collection is inspired by the night’s sky, some from the view from Earth, such as star-gazing from a porch swing, while others pay homage to astronomy. Each of the 12 accessory patterns works well with bold, speckled, and vibrant yarns as well as semi-solid and neutrals, making the designs well suited for using those treasured skeins in your yarn collection. These accessory designs are excellent for travel knitting given their size. For festival-goers or everyday use, these finished objects are ones you’ll want to wear.
