size of pattern
I was wondering what size this is so I can try to look for material before I order it.
Thanks for any help.

These come out to about 6.5 " by 10" if you stitch them on the recommended 18 ct linen. Charm packs are available for each design as well.

Miss Debora do not forget to add 4 inches to the fabric at the time of purchase. the size of the fabric is supposed to be 11 x 14.

This pattern really confuses me. The stitch size is 112 stitches x 169 stitches on 18ct. Natural Linen. The description sounds like it is stitched over 1 thread, but I found on another website that it is stitched over 2 threads. Normally we stitch 18 ct. over 1 thread which gives the smaller size. Every website I checked said the stocking finished size was 18 inches x 11 inches so it has to be stitched over 2 threads which is what the picture looks like. The thread used is DMC #5 Pearle Cotton, Weeks Dye Works #5, and Crescent Colors #5. There is also an embellishment kit used. Also you must add 3 inches for each side when deciding what size fabric you need.

This one is pretty and confusing.

Syagel, I think you must be right. I do think they are stitched over 2 now that I think about it, that is too small. I will check the chart next day at work and see.

18 is a very big count for linen. Must have a burlap appearance, but that explains the #5 Perle coton. I would buy extra Weeks Dye Works for coverage.

We sell a lot of these. It is very close to burlap- without the roughness....very large weave, and yes, that is why they use pearl cotton instead of floss.

Yep....definitely stitched over 2 with 1 strand of PC.
