Triptych – a set of three associated artistic, literary, or musical works intended to be appreciated together.
A new appreciation for a classic linen stitch emerges when knit with three contrasting colors. Higher contrast yields a bolder pop of pattern! Simpliworsted by Hikoo creates a super squishy fabric, and the 51” length is practically perfect for wrapping around your neck twice, or wearing loose and flowing as one loop.

Yarn – Three 100 gram hanks of Simpliworsted by Hikoo. Choose 3 high contrast colors in varying tonal values (think black, gray, white) for maximum contrast. I would suggest choosing a dark neutral for color one, a medium toned bright for color two, and a light tone for color three.
Sample A was knit with colors 02 Black, 08 Natural Olive, and 03 Natural.
Sample B was knit with colors 38 Seattle Gray, 54 Vavava Voom Red, and 26 Pale Yellow.
