I don’t know anything about embroidery, but would really like to start applying embroidery detail onto my crochet afghans. I have some questions as to what would make this most effective. 1. What crochet stitch would work best if I’d want to embroider on it? Hook and yarn size would be good to know too. 2. Is it then possible to apply embroidery onto the yarn? What equipment would I need to do this? I have here a picture of the type of embroidery I would like to do on the afghan. Also, some kind of lettering would be a nice addition.
I know this is not exactly a crochet question, but related. Many amigurumi patterns call for embroidering details, especially faces. Though I understand how to do this, I don't know how to anchor the stitch so it can't be pulled easily. Sometimes it can be hidden if a part of the piece has a similar color, I just tie it there and then take the needle in the toy until it comes out in the right place and then take it back to secure it. But most of the times, I can't do this without leaving a very obvious knot of a contrasting color. How do I do this? Diana
