In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone;
’Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp,
When my eyes were stabbed by
The flash of a neon light
That split the night,
And touched the sound of silence.

(Simon & Garfunkel’s The Sound of Silence)

Neon Light is a simple Tunisian crochet wrap, made stunning by a smart use of relatively unknown stitches and self-striping yarns.
The extended and double stitches, combined with a thin yarn and relatively big hook, make it look somewhat similar to lace items, but there’s no lace in it, I promise.

The pattern is rated easy according to Craft Yarn Council’s standards - if you’re an absolute beginner, though, you might want to use a thicker yarn.

If you like the scarf but don’t really feel like making it yourself, check out my tester Sandy’s finished item, for sale on her Etsy shop 10DigitsDesign.

Neon Light è una semplice stola ad uncinetto tunisino: diventa speciale grazie ad un uso originale di punti poco noti abbinati a filati autoriganti.
I punti allungati e doppi insieme ad un filo sottile ed un uncinetto relativamente grande la fanno somigliare ad un capo in pizzo, ma di pizzo qui non c’è nemmeno l’ombra.

Il modello è valutato easy secondo gli standard dei Craft Yarn Council - se siete principianti assoluti, comunque, vi consiglierei di utilizzare un filato un po’ più spesso.
