The model on the picture has been stitched on a 40 count linen fabric (colour off-white) using one strand of cotton over two threads of fabric for a faded effect. But you can stitch it on a lower count fabric using two strands of cotton over two threads of fabric.

Recommended fabric: linen or evenweave of your choice regarding the stitch count, colour "white" or "off-white", 35x35 cm (14 x 14 in). Can also be worked on Aida (special instructions included to replace the satin stitches).
