Super Duper Dupe Stitch with Myra Wood
Learn how to add color and pattern to plain stockinette using duplicate stitch and simple charts. I'll show you lots of tips and tricks about changing colors, traveling from one area to another, making your own patterns, and more. Dupe stitch is a great way to transform a simple edge into something spectacular or to hide a knitting boo-boo. Great for weaving in ends, too. 

Supplies
__Several yards of 4-5 smooth DK or sport (pick one) weight yarns (wool, wool-blend, or acrylic)
__knitted swatch of the same weight yarn in a light color
__tapestry needle or yarn needle (Susan Bates #16 yarn needle or Dritz size 16 tapestry needle)
__Knitting Basics: Sharp scissors, Notebook, Pen or pencil with eraser, Stitch markers, Tapestry needles (large and small), Tape measure, Small calculator, Needles and crochet hooks of various sizes

Homework
Knit a 5 inch square stockinette fabric with either DK or sport weight yarn (whichever you chose, make sure it is the same weight as the yarn you bring to class) and US4 needles. 
Steam block with iron to relax fabric. Don't stretch, just hover the iron and steam to unroll edges.
