With a bright, bold graphic pattern, Candy Dots is sure to satisfy your knitting sweet-tooth. Candy Dots is knit in the round and is joined seamlessly, resulting in a double layer of cozy warmth to keep you warm and smiling through those dreary, grey winter days. Featuring a fun, but simple two-color stranded colorwork pattern, Candy Dots is available in two sizes: a single-wrap cowl or a longer infinity scarf that can be worn doubled up for a little bit of extra coziness. The colorwork motif is easy to memorize, making it a great start for adventurous beginner-level knitters looking to try stranded knitting for the first time.

Candy Dots is also a perfect way to use up those smaller amounts of left-over fingering weight yarn you just can’t bring yourself to part with. Using less than 10 g of each contrast color, you can also mix things up and use a different color for each stripe of dots or chevrons to produce a wildly fun cowl/scarf that will keep you smiling all winter long.
