2. Make the corner, then continue couching. Beginning to Couch the Dove Outline 1. Working clockwise, couch a pair of #5 Japanese silver starting at the dove’s beak and working down the head. Hint Bring your needle straight up alongside the silver, then straight down the other side of the thread pair. If you slant your needle in the couching process, you will move the silver thread off the line and may also pinch the silver, causing a scalloped appearance. Remember to pull on the koma after each couching stitch to secure an even, tight line after the piece is removed from the frame.
Note: Make corner stitch #2 above the line of the other couching stitches. This stitch is exaggerated so it forms a point outward. When done this way, the turn will appear very square, not rounded. Since the loop stitch is taken over a half pair of threads and is made by coming up and going down in the same hole, it compresses the thread a little to allow for a very sharp turn. (Fig. 7) 4. After making corner stitch #2, hold the couching thread taut and pull the outer koma so it runs parallel with the inner koma.
