With two separate views and pattern options galore, a Duotone (or two!) is sure to become a must-have and a must-wear!

The faux ribbing is such a game changer!! I initially tried a 1x1 rib neckband and it looked so messy. I switched to faux ribbing and I really love how professional it looks!

I loved knitting this pattern! Perfect amount of relaxing stockinette split up by the occasional faux icord was great. I love the contrast from the colours and how they blend together.

I lived in my sweater the first three days after finishing if that tells you anything. I very much enjoyed this sweater and love the endless color choices you could come up with.

I love the texture-marbling effext and the icord accents were so pretty to see come to life! I’ll definitely wear my finished piece a lot.

    Duotone is a modified drop-shoulder sweater with a relaxed, cozy fit that is knit in the round, from the bottom up, holding two yarns together. Slipped stitches, worked only in a single yarn, at the centre front and back and down the sleeves, mimic an i-cord and create a bold, crisp contrast to the marled, glowing fabric. These faux i-cords are worked in-place (no intarsia or sewing!) and, along with your choice of trims in the same, single colour, create maximum dual contrast in both colour and texture.

    With two separate views and included modifications like bust darts, trims and sleeve length, Duotone is the perfect combination of simplicity and interest to allow you to handknit a true everyday-wearable sweater that fits you perfectly.
