Let's learn how to make a kimono stitch!
Hoshidome Stitch （星止） is basically a Back Stitch. Each stitch is spaced widely apart on the top, leaving just a tiny dot. This will look like a star, especially when stitched with white thread on black silk. Most of the thread will of course be hidden at the back of the fabric.
