The matching sashiko needles
are a great buy as the needle is strong, with a large eye and the small width along the length of the needle.
There are two sized needles in the pack.
You are then able to choose which length you prefer. The longer the length means the more stitches you can load onto the needle at one time.
I also have the sashiko cream, red or navy cotton thread, you will need at least one skein for the panel unless you are using the navy or red thread and then I suggest you double to the thread.
If you ever wanted to try sashiko stitching, then this is an easy way to start. The panel comes preprinted with the images and all you need to do is to stitch over the printed dashed lines using a normal running stitch and a sashiko thread and needle.
The panel is then cut into blocks and these blocks can be made into wallhangings, cushions or a quilt.
Here's some examples of the panel blocks stitched.
