Duplicate Stitch = Using a yarn needle, *bring the yarn from the wrong side of the work to the right side at the base of the knitted stitch to be covered (this is the base of the vee formed by the knitted stitch), take the needle under both arms of the vee, going through the base of the vee of the stitch above, insert the yarn needle back into the same place where you began, taking the yarn to the wrong side of the work, being careful to match the tension of the surrounding knit fabric. Repeat from * for remaining stitches
