Duplicate stitch patterns- tattoos
Who didn't absolutely love the sock monkey tattoo on the Kia commercial? Duplicate stitch sock monkey tattoo was the win of the Superbowl commercials.
I've been meaning to graph out some duplicate stitch charts for adding duplicate stitch to your favorite thrift store sweater, or maybe even a sweater you buy from a thrift store just to put a duplicate stitch tattoo on it. I finally did a couple, but I'll absolutely be making more charts.
The sock monkey tattoo was duplicate stitch with a backstitch outline, so I graphed something like that.
There are blank banner versions and an alphabet, so you should be able to chart a very short word or maybe just initials in one of these. Click on the images for the full sized version. For how to do duplicate stitch, I love this tutorial by the purl bee.
