New & Improved! Our new light kits have 15 lights (vs the old ones with 10), come with GREEN wire (great for dark-colored sweaters) and have a blink setting!
Any chunky knit sweater can be made to light up in the dark with this 15-light LED Christmas light kit.
Runs on 2 AA batteries (not included). *NOTE* the lights work best with fresh batteries which are not rechargeables, or else the blue and green lights do not light up as well or at all.
How to light up your sweater:
1) Push lights through the knit from the inside to out where you want them placed (this may be more difficult for tight knit and acrylic sweaters, works best with chunky knit ramie/cotton sweaters).
2) (Optional) Stitch the lights in place with a needle and thread by looping the thread through the sweater then around the cord between lights, then tie tightly. Repeat between each light.
3) Create a "pocket" for your battery pack: Use a small piece of thin fabric (some people even use the toe cut out of an old sock) big enough to hold the battery pack and stitch it to the inside of the sweater near where the lights are placed. Make sure there is room in the cord for movement when the sweater is worn.
4) After your party, be sure to take your lights back out before you wash your sweater!
