Shibori Samples--Larch

Larch is usually circles stitched on a fold in continuous rows.  Other shapes may be stitched with this technique as well.  It really saves time on tying knots, re-threading your needle, and tying off the ends.

In the pic above, you can see how the thread skips over to the next group instead of being tied off for each circle.  In one row, all the small circles are stitched with one length of thread and then again for the medium and large circles.

In the pic above you can see how the cloth looks gathered up.  The pic below shows the row of three circles dyed in indigo.
