Do I duplicate stitch ends into the duplicate stitch?
Okie dokie then, I've searched Google, I've searched KH, now I'm picking ya'lls brains. I'm sure it's soooo easy and that's why I'm looking for a harder method.

I'm doing a washcloth, exciting I know, and want to embroider something on it. I've done duplicate stitch to weave in loose ends, but never for embroidery. How would I do the ends for a one sided dishcloth? Should I just start the stitching leaving a tail then duplicate stitch the ends back into the duplicate stitches? Seems too easy. Would it hold?

You duplicate the embroidery design, and then you just weave in the ends over their respective colors, and no, they won't come out, just give it a tug and don't worry about it.
One of many knitting guys.
