Couching

When I saw that couching is the TAST stitch for week 9, I knew this was what I was looking for to finish a project I’m working on. Unfortunately it’s for a swap, so I can only show this sneak peek. The chain stitches are crocheted, not stitched. The threads are acrylic and cotton, couched with 2 threads of stranded DMC. I’ll show the finished piece when it has arrived.

Added April 1: I wrote about the finished piece here.

  2. Can't wait until you can show the whole thing. Is the crochet couched on, too?

    1. You'll have to wait, it has to travel far. And yes, the crochet is couched through the loop at the backside.
