Create pretty patterned coasters with this kogin embroidery kit. Kogin is a form of sashiko stitching that uses running stitches to create a repeating geometric pattern. Similar to pattern darning, kogin is quick to learn and fun to stitch!
Kogin is a counted thread technique, so the pattern is not printed on the fabric like in other forms of sashiko. Instead you follow a stitching chart just like you do in cross stitch.
Each kit makes two 4-inch coasters.
- Cotton fabric
- Cotton kogin thread
- Kogin needle
- Backing fabric
- Stitching chart
The instructions included in the kit are in Japanese only, but we have a detailed introduction to kogin stitching on our blog to get you started!
