Marian Reynolds told us at a Seminar to make a swatch in the same gauge as you will duplcate stitch on and steam it. Then unravel it and the wrinkles in the yarn will be the right amount of yarn you need for each duplicate stitch. It works like a charm to get nice even duplicate stiches.

Use duplicate stitch to add more colors to double bed jacquard or fairisle patterns.
