What is kugurizashi? Kuguri literally means 'go through', and it is a kind of hitomezashi (one stitch sashiko) where you can create beautiful designs by threading or weaving thread, often in a different colour, through simple rows of running stitch. I recommend turning your needle around when you do the threaded part, so you don't accidentally pierce your previous stitches. The running stitches are printed on the panel, and the instruction leaflets show you how to thread. Fun and quick to make!
