Floss estimation is for stitching with one strand of floss over two linen threads on 40-count fabric. DMC equivalent is only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for for hand-dyed fibers.
The entire design is worked in cross stitch.
I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.
About the design: Each square contains a hidden letter of the alphabet (taken from the center of the design) multiplied four times. Starting from the top left corner square (box 1) and reading left to right for each row – box one contains four of the letter “A”, box two contains four of the letter “B”, box three contains four of the letter “C”, and so on.
To design your own inscription sampler: 1. Choose a word – for example: first name, last name, "love", or “welcome” 2. Stitch the squares containing the letters of your word.
**(For those of you wanting a full-size "M" and/or "N", they are posted on the "free charts page" of my website. A square with four hearts and a blank square to design your own are available as well.)**
Each individual square has a stitch count of 41 x 41.
Each square is the perfect size for a scissor fob, ornament, or needlebook.
