I know it's possible to do a duplicate stitch with knitting, but is it possible to do it with crocheting?

I'd love to be able to answer you but I don't even know what a duplicate stitch is and I've been crocheting for 30+ years.  Maybe explain what it is in knitting and it might ring a bell for someone - perhaps it has a different name in crochet.

I used my old friend google, and this is what i found for duplicate stitch in knitting http://bellaknitting.typepad.com/bella_knitting/2007/08/duplicate-stitc.html
which i guess is basically like slip stitching on top of a flat crochet piece. Maybe you have another suggestion, homerof2 now that you know what it is.

After seeing that example the only thing I can think of is doing cross stitch on top of a flat piece of crochet - that's done often to give dimension and spell things.

I'll have to give those a try. Thank you both!
