A simple, colourblock top that provides a canvas for displaying two of your favorite colours. Duet is knit from the top down, with a relaxed fit and minimal finishing. The main star of this top is your own duet of colours.

Duet was originally inspired by yarn purchased from Katrina of Pirate Purl Yarns. The idea was to keep the design minimal to show off the two beautiful neutral shades. I then knit a second version with our Daintree base, using two of my favorite shades: pink and gold. A duet of colour, yarns and dyers have all combined to create this design.
