I've done something similar on a scarf with homespun thick yarn. Now I know it's actually an official technique with a name. Thanks for posting. I love the pillow and can appreciate the skill involved. Great colours too.

WOW so cool. What a great idea to use with my hand spun that I don't want to crochet with.

carrin

Absolutely stunning! I adore the colors, incredible textures, and pattern. Beautiful.

Valerie

Wow, the colors and texture of this are amazing! I like that the fibers you couched aren't of a uniform size, and they make me think of little worms wriggling through the threads. :)

i love that pillow. it looks like my doodles. practically every notebook i have since highschool has it's margins filled with doodle mazes like that. and i've wanted to incorporate the idea in something. and there it is!

Beautiful, Magan! I love the colors!

Thanks for all the comments! Yes, the process is fun, and kind of challenging, as MIJK alludes to! You have to keep the 'maze' of yarn going in such a way that you don't 'clump' colors together. With couching, the thumb on your non-dominant hand gets to feel useful! :-) The think I like best about doing this technique is that it's designing-as-you-go. Also, educational for children, as they trace their finger along the path!

Beautiful..I love it. It is a fun process, yes??
yes, it is.

Doug

do you also eat gummy worms while you are working on these pillows?

amy

I love the look of the slubby nubby yarn. So cool. And the colors are wonderful too.

mijk

I love how it is a random and blanced design at the sametime!

Siri

Very cool. It looks like it would be pretty fun to do too, no?

wilsonian
