How to work Duplicate Stitch

  1. Jenni says: 16 December 201312:32 am

    Oh I love this! I wish I could knit so I could actually create it…perhaps someday :)

      Don’t worry if you can’t knit, Jenni – you can still add these stitched motifs to a jumper you already own. You’ll just need to get hold of some yarn and a darning needle. :)

    Thanks for the clear tutorial! Mr. Fox is adorable – I’m looking forward to the pattern, as well as, your other critters. Here’s to hoping you have a wolf pattern in the works. :)

    Oo a wolf and beaver – super cute – thanks for the suggestions, guys! I have lots of ideas for some other sets of colour charts, so I’ll have a play with these.

    Thank you so much for this tutorial, it is clearly explained so even I can follow it. I will be doing a lot of this in the future on my grandchildren’s jumpers. Love anything with foxes on it, but lookin forward to seeing what else you come up with. Thanks Jess.

    So cute! I’ve been looking for a fox pattern. Hope to see the chart soon. Thanks for posting.

    I made an attempt following your video and a chart I drew myself on grid paper. Thanks for posting the video!

    I can’t figure out how the row above begins once you finish the bottom row. If you go right to left and you end up each time bringing the needle through to the next stitch to the left, how to you end a row?

    • Jess says: 23 January 201411:35 am

      Hi Laura! When you pass the needle back through the hole you first came up (to create the left leg of the V), rather than coming up at the base of the stitch to the left, manoeuvre it to come out at the base of whichever stitch you want to work next. This could be the stitch directly above, or diagonally. I try not to skip too many rows to avoid long floats on the back of the work – but it’s fine to do if you don’t mind that. I hope that helps! :)

    Thanks for the tutorial! I have added the fox face to the left side of my lavender baby cardigan and a fox-tail to the right side. Photo added to Ravelry knitting website under project name ‘Fantastic Mrs Fox’.

    I am late coming in on this, but I would so love a chart of a raccoon head. Is there any chance of adding one to the group?

  16. Jess says: 11 April 201610:05 am
