Duplicate stitch – I tried

The daughter of a friend recently had her first child, a daughter. So as I usually do, I cast on a baby jumper and knitted up a cute little four month size, red jumper. Then I decided to try my hand at duplicate stitch, which is kind of like embroidery for knitting.

The little red jumper

I traced out an apple onto the front of the little jumper and away I went on my new learning journey.

A beginning
Nearly there
Weaving in all the ends
A wash to set the wool

It’s a rather lumpy apple. Not perfect by any stretch, but neither am I. I hope my friend’s daughter will like it anyway. I think I need to practice this skill a lot more to be better at it.

  1. I’m sure that she will love it. Perfection isn’t necessary when it’s crafted with love. It’s a beautiful little jumper 👏👏👏
