A big chunk of sales will be donated to an organization doing good somewhere in the world—click to my designer page (Lee Meredith at the top of this page) to find details about where current sales will be going.

This rectangular piece uses two contrasting colors — semi-solids look lovely — and can be made as large as you like, or right up until your yarn runs out!

Transversal is a wrap or scarf (depending on how wide and long you choose to make it) with a striped garter stitch base and a textured, slip-stitch lace pattern traveling diagonally across from one corner to the other side, then along the side, with a nice slip-stitch edging up both sides.

Yarn: approximately 390, 585, 780 yards total sport-DK weight yarn, in two colors. I used Blue Moon Fiber Arts Gaea Sport, colorways Ochroid (yellow, color A, 195, 292, 390 yards) & Mica (brown, color B, 195, 292, 390 yards).

Small, medium, large are 8, 12, 16 inches wide, 48 inches long. Width and length can really be anything you want — Pattern Notes explain width and gauge modifications; work as long as you want, stopping when you like or when yardage is exhausted. Yardage estimates are for the measurements listed. Wrap is shown in large size.

Entire pattern is written and charted. The whole thing is striped between the 2 colors (only 1 yarn used per row).

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!

The full nine-pattern collection is no longer available, but you can now get the three patterns by Lee Meredith together as a mini-collection.

The In Triplicate collection is a collaboration between Shannon Squire, Star Athena, Lee Meredith, and Blue Moon Fiber Arts; photography is by Lee Meredith; drawings and doodles are by Star Athena; graphic design is by Lee; tech editing was done by Polly of Butterscotch Press.
