STEP-BY-STEP SWISS DARN­ING

Simply Knitting - - Winter Fox -

Swiss darn­ing or du­pli­cate stitch is a great way to add small de­tails to your knit­ting, cov­er­ing the stitch with an em­broi­dery stitch the same shape as the stitch be­neath it.

Work from bot­tom to top, bring­ing the nee­dle out at the base of the stitch at 1 . Take the nee­dle be­hind the top of the ‘V’, in at 2 and out at 3 . Take the nee­dle down at 1 and bring it up at 4 , at the base of the stitch above. Con­tinue in this way up the line of knit­ted stitches.
