Couching with Cross Stitch

Schematic drawing of couching with cross stitch. Schematic drawing of couching with cross stitch. Drawing by Martin Hense.

Couching with cross stitch is a composite stitch and a variation of couching, whereby detached cross stitches are used to fasten down the couching thread. This type of stitch can be used for both counted thread and free-style embroidery. This stitch should not be confused with the couched cross stitch.

If a thick thread is used for the couching thread and the cross stitches are worked closely together, then the effect of a trammed cross stitch is achieved.
