Neck Truffle Free Pattern - Quick Holiday Gift Knitting

Published in January 2009, my Neck Truffle pattern seemed to be a hit at the yarn shop where I was working at the time. It's super quick, and the stitch pattern simple enough for beginners to master.The ribbon lacing makes it special, luxurious, and great for gift giving.

It's been almost a year since the pattern was launched and there are now over 100 Neck Truffle projects on Ravelry!

It's very flattering to have other knitters like my designs enough to knit their own! I'd like to feature a few of my favorite Neck Truffle patterns...

How about buttons instead of the ribbon? Looks great! I'm always a fan of toggles :) and it seems like a lot of us are lovers of Malabrigo Rasta!

It's so inspiring to see the color choices and different embellishments on these projects.

The simple monochromatic color theme used in this version is stunning. This is a classic that would fit into anyone's wardrobe.

It's so fantastic seeing how people customize my patterns for themselves. I hope all of my designs evoke the 'beautifully simple' theme, allowing knitters to put their own personality into their creations. The ability to modify this pattern keeps it interesting and makes for individualized gifts.

What are you knitting for Holiday gifts this year?
