Duplicate stitch, purl version?
Hi Everyone,
I am doing a rather intricate sock pattern and just noticed that about 6 inches ago I did 6 knit stitches and 5 purl stitches instead of doing 11 purl stitches. Dropping down won't work and I would rather not rip all that work out. I decided that I could do a duplicate stitch instead. Problem is that all the directions I found in my books show only the knit version. Could someone please help me figure out how to do a purl version of the duplicate stitch????

Take care,
Arlene

Hi, Arlene. I gave some effort to an answer to this. It seems like it should be possible, but I'm not sure and have never done it. I fooled around trying and then made a swatch with one row of purl in a contrast color in a field of stockinette stitch of another color. I also made a sample of all one color with a row of purl in it. What I learned is that in one color the purl row has bumps rather like this "nununu"--some going up and some going down but of course all in one color, so that it looks like what we think of as one row of purl on a field of St st. But when I did the purl row in a contrast color the little "u" parts were purple and the the "n" parts were my background color. How to get both bumps in one color with needle and yarn is a puzzler. It may be possible. But maybe not for me. Have you tried a Google search? Good luck.

You really put alot of time and effort into this and I greatly appreciate it. I was thinking of using a darning needle and yarn and going over the top of my "oops" knit stitches with sort of pretend purl stitches. Haven't actually tried it yet. I did try to do a search using the words "duplicate stitch, purl version" and did not really come up with anything that applied. I can't really think of what way to word my problem other than that.

Once again, thank you soooo very much.

Take care,
Arlene

Hi Everyone,

I have two photos to upload. The first one shows the error. The second one shows it fixed. I used a embroidery backstitch with a darning needle and yarn over the erroneous knit stitches.

Take care,
Arlene
PS: How do I upload pictures that I have in my computer under my pictures?

Hi Suzeeq,
I used the first resizer you had listed and followed all of the instructions but I got a upload error. It said upload of file failed. So I must of done something wrong but cannot figure out what. I am really getting frustrated.

Take care,
Arlene

I've had good luck using the paperclip icon to attach a picture. Dunno what to say...
