Featured FO: Neck Truffles!!
Inspiration came from blustery winter days and an instinctual need to knit with the bulkiest, warmest yarns in sight.
An interesting way to transform the simplest-shape-to-knit rectangle is to attach the bind off edge to the side edge, creating an asymmetrical piece that can be worn inside a winter coat, or used as a snuggly office neck warmer.
Seeing the variations people have created on Ravelry has been a delight - with over 250 projects, I've discovered solid and rainbow, multicolored versions, as well as truffles laced with ribbons and fastened with buttons and toggles!
Today's featured FOs are lovely examples of how different the neck truffles can be styled. First, a simply beautiful version from ThatKnitChick (Jenn).
Next, we have a few truffles knit up by pnason (Patty).
What great photos - look at the color variation and stitch definition Patty got using Malabrigo Rasta in Porrinho. Gorgeous! The pink ribbon on this version makes it very sweet ;)
Patty also worked up a teal version of the neck truffle using Malabrigo Rasta in Teal Feather.
I really like the size of this FO - it's got a nice large, slouchy quality to it.
