On Ravelry I have partaken in the January EAL (embellishment a-long) using Watermelish charts. I have always to learn duplicate stitch and how to add some extra detailing to knitted items. I joined in and ended up doing three items!  🙂 Tanja has links on her page for tutorials of step by step instructions which makes it easier to understand.

My friend J helped me with the first one. I was tired and it took a bit for me to “get it” but I got there.  Thanks J! I did the heart on M’s Breezy top in Ming Blue.

The second one I did is the gorgeous Strawberry from the yet to be released Sweet Delight chart (EAL peeps were able to try it first!). I added this to M’s newly finished Paige Babydoll

I did the last one last night on a rainbow dress I did for the girls I (both of them wear it). I was never really happy with it but now it has three heart embellishments on it and it looks fabulous!

I have had some fun learning this new skill as did many others. I challenge you try it out for yourself.
