Truffle features a simple lace rib pattern that looks like tiny little cables; however, these are mock cables formed by a basic slipped stitch sequence followed by a yarn over. The pattern repeat is easy to memorize as it is only five rows long and five stitches wide; the striking crown decreases are inspired by the wonderful Jacques Cousteau Hat. The overall lace ribbing is also very stretchy and will accomodate a wide range of sizes, making this a great project for gift knitting.

Truffle belongs to the Box of Chocolates collection of patterns along with the BonBons mitts and the Nougat neckwarmer:
