Hi guys,

I'm wondering if on a piece of work that you intend to be handled and washed a lot if the duplicate stitch color change will eventually fall out? I Would think if you wanted it permanent you would have to knot something?

Thanks!

Duplicate stitch is knitting on top of a completed fabric to add color after the fact. You weave in the ends so it won't come apart. Is this what you are doing?

Or are you changing color as the project is knitted using intarsia or stranded (fair isle) knitting?

No matter what you're doing if you leave a 8 in end or so then weave it in you should be fine.
