GAUGE:
16 stitches by 24 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
DUPLICATE STITCH

Duplicate stitch is a very simple embroidery stitch where you use a piece of stockinette knit as canvas and place your stitches so that they follow the weave of the stockinette.

It works best on stockinette pieces where the back of the work (where the yarn is carried) is not visible.Thread the yarn into the large-eyed, blunt needle.

Working from the back of the fabric, bring the needle up through the center of an existing stitch.



Follow the yarn of the stitch up, to the point where it goes under the next stitch above.

Insert your needle at this point, so your yarn lies on top of the existing yarn in the stitch and bring it back up at the point where the yarn of the existing stitch comes back to the front.Following the existing stitch and insert the needle in the same loop where you started.

Keep the tension loose so that your new color stays on top.



To continue to the next stitch in the same horizontal row, simply bring the needle up through the center of that stitch and repeat the process.To skip several stitches, simply pass the yarn under as many stitches as you wish to skip, bringing it up in the center of the stitch where you want the bottom of your new stitch to be.

NOTES:
Knitting with Ruffles requires a special, yet simple, technique.
