Threads and colours

This pattern shows 2 colours (DMC references).

The model on the picture has been stitched on a 32 count linen fabric (colour "Natural") using both one strand of cotton over one thread of fabric and two strands of cotton over two threads of fabric.

Please note that this design can't be worked on Aida as it mixes some patterns stitched with one strand of cotton over one thread of fabric with other patterns stitched with two strands of cotton over two threads of fabric.

You can also choose to create your design using all the patterns in a composition of your own creation in order to avoid stitching with only 1 strand of cotton over 1 thread of linen. You will then be able to work it on aida but will lose the proportions of the initial design.

Recommended Fabric: 32 or 28 count linen fabric or evenweave colour "Natural", 50x50 cm (20x20 in).

This product is a cross-stitch chart + ribbon + old mother of pearl button + small weaved initials + instructions translated in English.
