Gunome-zashi is a method of stitching which involves an additional row of stitching being inserted between the standard width rows. Further the additional stitches are placed at alternate intervals to the standard stitches giving it a similar effect to Naname-zashi. Because Gunome-zashi features additional rows of stitching, it effectively tightens tha Sashihaba, making the Futon thinner and more rigid.
Pros: - Easier to form into a nice shape than Bou-zashi and Gunome-zashi - Offers more flexibility than Bou-zashi
Cons: - Offers less padding than Naname-zashi or Bou-zashi Only available with a Sashihaba of 1.5 Bu or wider
