Lately I’ve been noticing that there seems to be a trend towards combining crochet with needle-and-thread crafts including cross-stitch and embroidery. I’m digging this multi-craftual, mixed media trend and wanted to highlight it. Today I’ll share 20 examples of crochet items that incorporate cross-stitch or one of the other similar needle crafts. (Not sure what the difference is between cross-stitch, embroidery and needlepoint? Learn here.)
