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!

This project features simple knits and purls in a spiraling design. I think of the garter lines as an x-axis. The cowl is worked in garter stitch with little stockinette sections intercepting all along.

Cowl is knit in the round until a long tube forms, then is grafted together using kitchener stitch to finish.

Notions: A crochet hook for provisional cast-on, stitch marker, tapestry needle.

Yarn: approximately 300 yards total sport-DK weight yarn, in three colors. I used Blue Moon Fiber Arts Gaea Sport, colorways Mica (grey, color A, 100 yards), Lover’s Leap (HOT pink, color A, 100 yards), & Ochroid (yellow, color C, 100 yards).

Size/Finished Measurements: 6” wide, 26” circumference.
