#91 'matsukasa & yukihana' kogin coasters KIT
Arriving mid October and available for preorder now.
This cute kogin kit from Olympus Thread Mfg. Co. makes a two coasters, stitched on 20 count evenweave 100% linen kogin fabric in two different designs - reverse matsukasa (pine cone) in shaded gold kogin thread on natural linen, and yukihana (snow flower), a rather Scandinavian looking design, on dark blue (this pattern is not included in my sashiko book, as it is a contemporary design).
Kit includes kogin threads, fabrics, instructions (in Japanese) including kogin pattern chart, and kogin needle. The Japanese instructions in these kits are mainly pictorial and very easy to follow - I recommend using the Google Translate phone app to 'read' the Japanese for you, if you feel it is necessary. Just remember, all measurements in these kits are in metric.
