In the Zen Buddhist tradition, satori refers to the experience of kenshō, “seeing into one’s true nature.” Ken means “seeing,” shō means “nature” or “essence.” Satori and kenshō are commonly translated as enlightenment, a word that is also used to translate bodhi, prajna and buddhahood.

This is a stitch pattern I created back in 2010. Recently, I received an inquiry from a customer, which prompted me to update this handout on my Ravelry account. This stitch pattern is available for free; you may download from my Recipe page.

I have used this stitch pattern for two afghans, but it could also be used for pot holders, wash cloths, etc.
