Floss estimation is for stitching all pieces with one strand of floss over-two linen threads on 35-count linen. Weeks Dye Works and DMC conversions are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand-dyed silk.

Package contains charting for the huswif (also suitable for framing) and scissor fob, stitching instructions, stitch diagrams, complete finishing instructions, templates for wool shapes, and an alphabet/numbers for personalization.

I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.

Stitches (diagrams for all stitches are provided):

Cross Stitch over-two linen threads
Cross Stitch over-one linen thread (optional)
Back Stitch
Smyrna Cross Stitch
Eye Stitch
Four-sided Stitch

Whip Stitch (finishing)

Additional stitch diagrams for the Stem Stitch and the Feather Stitch are also included.
