Kasuti Patterns 1

These Kasuti patterns uses Gavanti and Muragi stitches, and can be printed onto an A4 size page for practice. Click on each image to see an enlarged version.

The patterns are in black and red, each color denoting a single continuous stitch flow. This might be helpful to some. More patterns will be added as I acquire and prepare them.
