Turkman & raised cup stitch

TAST stitch 85 is raised cup stitch and TAST stitch 86 is Turkman stitch
TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, a challenge at Pin Tangle.

First I wanted to skip the raised cup stitch, because I used it recently on my garden sampler. But when I saw the triangles in the Turkman stitch, I changed my mind. It was the perfect combo for my white cloth. Here I stitched Turkman stitch with perle 5.
This is the first raised cup stitch on the base of the Turkman stitch. I didn’t pay attention to the corners, so I disturbed the Turkman stitch.
And the complete row. It was very important to connect the threads in the corners in a knot from the raised cup stitch. All raised cup stitches have 2 rounds, normally I only use 1 round.

  1. You have the eye, Annet! You see how stitches can be used, combined or tampered with! This is a great marriage between Mr Turkman and Miss Raised Cup!

  2. very effective putting these two stitches together

  3. You have a good eye for using stitches!

  4. Very creative idea of using the triangles of the turkman stitch for raised cup stitch. Well done and thanks for sharing.
