I have this pattern by Sandy Orton who did the design. The one I got is by Kooler Classic Charts. It is the exact same one as the one by Bucilla, but it uses brighter colors. It is a chart and not a kit. It does have 1/4 stitches and French knots. whichever one you get. I rarely buy kits since I have a large stash of supplies. In this case I liked the Kooler Classic Charts best because of the brighter colors. I also found several reviews from stitchers that bought the Bucilla kit and says that the floss comes all messed up. That is one reason I won't buy Bucilla kits because I have heard this before. If you are interested in the Kooler pattern I bought it from here . It is listed under the patterns link. Hope this helps.
I am the one who always uses a sharp needle, and I plan to do this on 14ct. Aida. Personally I would not buy the Bucilla kit because of the negative reviews I read about it, however it is your choice. Good Luck!
