In general practice, you can only install ONE 3-way dimmer switch to control the lights. If you use two regular 3-way dimmer switches, the circuit won't work.
However, newer technology allows for double 3-way dimming from different locations. See this article about how to do this:

If you are replacing a three way switch with a three way switch, you should only use the wires that were connected to the old switch. (Unfortunately the color coding of these wires is not universal.) Assuming you have only 2 switches, that means you only need to connect 3 wires to the switch (in addition to the ground). One wire (to be connected alone on either side of the top or bottom of the switch) either comes from the electric panel or goes to the light fixture. The other two wires (both at the top or bottom of the switch) are the "travelers" and go directly to the other switch. You can examine the other switch (the one you aren't working on) to confirm which two wires are your travelers. I hope this helps. Good luck!

Yes, the ST01C will work in a 3-way switch circuit. Be aware that the ST01C timer _must_ be installed at the switch box that contains the hot feed from the circuit breaker or source. This is not always the most convenient or desired location.

There is no 'neutral' in a switch leg ... sounds simple but please think about it. The neutral goes to one side of the load (your light or what ever) while the hot goes to to the other side of the load via the switch be it single, three or four way switch.
I think you can resolve this if you thing about 'no neutral in a switch leg'.
