In Triplicate is a study in threes: three designers collaborating to design three accessories each, using the same three colors in different ways. There are nine designs total: three for the head, three for the hands, and three for the neck (one of each thing in all three colors, one in two colors, and one in a single color). Knit from the full collection to maximize your yarn and make some matching things!

When I started thinking about how these three colors could play together in a hat, my mind immediately went to stacking bricks, and slipping stitches and movement. There’s a swirly geometric loveliness to this pattern that’s both soothing and interesting to work.

approximately 170 (210) yards total sport-DK weight yarn, in three colors. I used Blue Moon Fiber Arts Gaea Sport, colorways Mica (grey, color A, 70 (90) yards), Ochroid (yellow, color B, 45 (55) yards) &
Lover’s Leap (HOT pink, color C, 55 (65) yards).

Size/finished measurements
Small (large) : 19 (22)“ circumference, 8 (8.5)” tall, from cast-on edge to top. Hat with Ochroid brim is shown in small size; hat with Mica brim is shown in large size.
