how to embroider (not dup stitch)
i was wondering if anyone had a link to a "how to embroider" your knitting. i know how to do a duplicate stitch, but sometimes i want the embrodery to be smaller than the knit stitches or not as block-like.

Do you mean how to embroider ON your knitting? If so, this isn't bad: http://www.craftown.com/instruction/embroidery.htm

If you know the name of the stitch you want to do, I've typed it in on about.com--they have more detailed instructions. Hope that helps!

that site is great! thank you.
to do it on a knitted piece, do i just carefully go through part of the yarn, or is it sugested to sew through all plies?

I usually go between stitches, but sometimes I need the thread in the middle of a stitch, and then I go through all plies. I think it's probably sturdier than just going through part of the yarn. Good luck! I've always been happy with how embroidery looks on a knitted piece.
