New Release Pattern - Duet

July 02, 2020

This week we are super excited to be sharing our newest pattern, Duet.  This simple, colourblock top provides a canvas for displaying two of your favourite 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 favourite shades: pink and gold. A duet of colour, yarns and dyers have all combined to create this design.

We are really lucky to be collaborating with Pirate Purl Yarns for this design.  Katrina will be  topping up her shop with lots of Blackbeard skeins this Friday (the yarn base used for the grey version).  We will also be stocking up our shop with Daintree which was used for the second version (pink and gold).
