The design area is 117 stitches (w) x 221 stitches (h). Our calculations have included a 3″ margin for finishing and framing. The model was stitched using 24ct Legacy Linen in Rain Barrel that we ourselves “aged” by tea dyeing. The original sampler was stitched on approximately 24ct linen that we suspect was woven on a hand loom.
The design is suitable for stitching on Aida, Linaida, or linen. We recommend that you should use a count and fabric that you enjoy working with.
