Kogin sashimi kit 6

◆Skill up kit 6
If you enjoy Kit 6, which is the theme of this time, together with the next Kit 7, you will be able to experience how small changes in a simple design can change the world of expression . Currently, the only fabric available is Tsugaru Kobosha Kogin Dwell , but when it first went on sale, it was sold in two fabrics: Zweigart Davosa . However, Davosa is too soft compared to other kogin embroidery cloths, so it may not be suitable for beginners. I thought so, and after selling it for a certain period of time, I sealed it. (The photo below is Dabosa on the left and Dwell on the right)

◆Difficulty level and points

The difficulty level is 2. Even if Kogin-zashi seems to be a complicated pattern, if you break it down into factors , you will be able to see the patterns you memorized when you were a beginner , and you will feel like you can do it yourself. We designed it to be that experience. The design consists of two simple patterns .
Also, since the same constant motion continues, I think it can be used to practice hand movement . If I can knit, I would like to try knitting with this pattern. Someone please teach Satonobo how to knit.

◆Material introduction
Tsugaru Kobosha Kogin Dwell (Azabu)
The pattern will be vertical. Preferences vary because the weaving thread fluctuates, but I personally find it easier to embroider in that area. Rather than inserting a needle into a hole in the fabric, I believe that if you insert the needle as if you were playing the thread like a stringed instrument, you will be able to thread the thread without breaking it.

Zweigart Davosa/ Zweigart Davosa (cotton cloth)
Many people seem to use Zweigart linen cloth for kogin zashi, but this is 100% cotton cloth. Perhaps because the glue is loose, the fabric and thread resonate when you pull the thread, making it a little difficult to use as is. Adding a little tension with something like spray laundry starch or liquid varnish may make a difference. Still, I'm glad that the count is familiar, [Number of stitches: 71 stitches per 10cm (18 counts)] . And above all, the color of the cloth is wonderful. I think the feel of the material, the thickness and softness of the fabric, and the impression of the threads are similar to Lucien's Congress. There's still room for research, so I'd like to try it out myself and let you know what I find appealing.

Handmade fan hand-dyed kogin thread

Since this topic appears many times, I will comment from a slightly different perspective. Many of our handiwork enthusiasts dye a lot at once, so not only do we want to make sure the materials are of good quality, but it also helps us provide them as kits to a large number of people. If you are hosting a workshop, we would love to hear from you . Also, the name of the thread is the color itself , which I appreciate when I repeat it. I also learned what it takes to be a provider, including how to respond politely. There are multiple online shops, so be sure to shop where you can easily shop.
As a side note, koginbank 's yarn is also impressive and wonderful, not only in color but also in name, so please check it out!

◆Secret Story of Birth In the previous blog , I mentioned that for a while after the spring of 2020, I was spending time simply trying to create patterns in my head on cloth without having a purpose, under the title ``Kogin-zashi'' . . In fact, this kit was born from that very time. It was also a time when I felt that kogin-zashi was fun every day without having to worry about anything.
