So..I'm right now planning on knitting my halloween costume this year. (Wonder woman, and yes I see it's been done but that's okay)

I'm planning on starting with some little shorts (these:http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer04/PATT1930.html) which will be blue with white stars. My question is would it be best to duplicate stitch the white stars afterwards (which would require less planning) or so I do some inartia knitting (which would make the shorts less bulky). What would you do?

Thanks for the feedback!

I think either/or would work and no, intarsia won't make the shorts bulky because you are doing blocks of color, not stranded the yarn throughout the whole pair of shorts.  If you're looking for an easier project, then I would go with duplicate stitch for the stars, but if you don't mind putting a little bit of forethought, intarsia would look a little better (duplicate stitch can be a bit bulky/thick where the dup stitch is).

She didn't state that intarsia would make the shorts bulky.

I read the post quickly in my eagerness to help out a fellow knitter, so I misread it a little bit.  I apologize if that offended you somehow.  Huh

LOL, it didn't offend me. I was correcting you. Perhaps my correcting you offended you?
