George Theofiel Dib is credited with the invention of the candy button machine and when I was a kid we called those strips of paper with colorful candy dots dibs. This cowl is meant to show off your favorite yarns with long color shifts, perfect for that lone skein of Noro or your handspun and it’s a great project to dip your feet into stranded colorwork! Here’s a quick video tutorial to get you started.
