Sushi Boat Needlepoint Kit - Stitch Guide

In this blog post we will show you the stitch guide for our Sushi Boat needlepoint canvas, designed by Anca Putin.

This design is extremely fun with small colorful areas throughout the whole canvas, and even with just two different stitches, it looks absolutely gorgeous when finished!

The secret here was to use a decorative stitch (diagonal scotch) in key areas to add texture and level up the project with a more interesting take on the design.
