Eweniversity Class Spotlight - Duplicate Stitch

Hi everyone! We are getting closer and closer to our Eweniversity and we are super excited around here! Today I'm going to talk about another great class on our schedule that's not full yet, and give you some examples on what you can use what you learn in that class for in your knitting life! Today we are going to talk about Duplicate Stitch.

5pm-6pm Room 2: Duplicate Stitch with Kaity. Skill Level: Sheep
"Duplicate stitch is a fun way to add a little something to a finished project. You can stitch any design onto knitted fabric, and in this class we'll practice with a little heart!"

Duplicate stitch is used to re-create the look of a knitted-in color design after-the-fact. You can knit a plain and simple hat, scarf, sweater, anything, then go back in after it's finished and add a little fun and color by stitching it on using Duplicate Stitch. It's a form of embroidery that you can use specifically on knitted items, and it's fun and easy to do! Here are some super cute pattern ideas that you can use your new found Duplicate Stitch skills on!

Dogosaurus Rex by Patons:
I made this dog sweater a couple of years ago for my mom's dog and duplicate stitched the little spots on it. My mom loved it and her doggie does too!

Warm Winter Mitts by Anna and Heidi Pickles:
These cute mittens are a simple stockinette stitch pattern, and the cute colorwork around the cuff is added afterward with Duplicate stitch. Make them to match your favorite winter coat!

Tulip Slouch by Allyson Dykhuizen:
Get LOTS of practice Duplicate stitching with this cute slouchy hat! The tulips are stitches on afterward, and I think this hat is TOO cute! I may need to make one for myself...

If you are interested in taking this fun Duplicate Stitch class, give us a call and register soon! We are going to have so much fun at our Eweniversity, we hope to see you there! :)
