In Sashiko Essentials, we focused on a basic square grid for stitching Hitomezashi Sashiko patterns. And that’s all good and fine, but let’s break out of the square grid and look at Hitomezashi from a new angle! Isometric grids in 30 or 60 degree angles make stunning sashiko patterns that you are going to love adding to your sashiko projects. Discover a whole new world of Hitomezashi Sashiko stitches as we guide you step-by-step and help you see your stitching from a different angle.

Prerequisite: Sashiko Essentials or equivalent.

Supplies needed: ring thimble with plate, Sashiko needle, 12-weight or Sashiko thread, 8” x 8” fabric swatch, marking pen suitable for the swatch, thread snips, graph paper, pencil, ruler. Optional kits and supplies are available for purchase at: shibaguyz.com. Order by June 25th to ensure your supplies arrive on time!
