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!

These mitts actually have many points of symmetry — the two mitts are symmetrical to each other; the point at which you join the circumference is a point of symmetry; and the exact middle of the thumb gusset is a point of symmetry. This also means that the left mitt is the right mitt is the left mitt, which makes getting dressed much much easier.

approximately 140 (175) yards total sport-DK weight yarn, in two colors. I used Blue Moon Fiber Arts Gaea Sport, colorways Lover’s Leap (HOT pink, color A, 90 (110) yards) & Ochroid (yellow, color B, 50 65 yards).
