Trio of mittens uses three skeins - one skein each of three colors.

From pattern notes:

While European knitters normally made mittens with pointed tips or by dividing the stitches into three or four equal sections for decreasing, I’ve used the North American style of maintaining the pattern all the way to the tip.

My version uses the Lithuanian three-color variation of Compass and Rose. All three (yes, three) mittens use the same chart, but I changed the sequence of colors for each, resulting in a trio that uses an equal amount of each yarn.

The mittens are made in such a way that they can be worn on either hand so, should you lose a mitten, it’s really no loss!
