Hitomezashi (One Stitch Sashiko)

Hitomezashi, or one stitch sashiko, designs are as easy and relaxing as traditional sashiko stitching. You simply thread your needle with sashiko thread and stitch over the printed markings.  Start by stitching all the vertical lines, then stitch all the horizontal lines, and finally stitch all the diagonal lines. The design will emerge from stitching these simple lines across the fabric from one edge to the other edge.
