Sashiko means "little stabs" and is a Japanese style of hand embroidery. Beautifully intricate patterns are created with a simple running stitch using thick cotton Sashiko thread. Sashiko is great for beginning and advanced stitchers alike. Easy to learn and relaxing to do!
Because of the small stitches in this detailed design, THIN sashiko threads like Daruma or Yokota work best for this sampler.
