Candytuft is a simple stranded colorwork cowl worked in the round. The pattern is easily adaptable so can make it larger if you would like. And it is also a useful way to use up any DK weight scraps you may have hanging around in your stash. You can wear it on its own or add a lovely shawl pin so it hugs closer to your neck.
