This great little technique can be used to add sections of color designs to stockinette. (It reminds me of cross stitching.) Many knitters use the Duplicate Stitch in lieu of small areas of Intarsia. These added stitches are placed on top of stockinette stitches after the piece is complete with the use of a tapestry needle. The Duplicate Stitch is also a great way to cover errors and wonky stitches you wish you had discovered prior to binding off. I especially love to use the Duplicate Stitch when weaving in ends on the right side of the work is needed.
Blocking wires are a fabulous way to finish many knitted pieces and is especially helpful with lace work. The wires are threaded through the edges of the piece providing straight lines and the ability to open up intricate lace designs along scalloped and pointed edges.
Many knitted pieces benefit from a single crochet edge. This treatment can mask any irregularities along the edges and give a uniform look to the garment. Even non-crocheters like me will love adding this valuable skill to their knitting arsenal!
Learn to pick up stitches along both a horizontal and vertical edge to add borders, button bands, trims, and more.
