NOTE: All measurements for finishing supplies, finishing instructions, and templates are designed for 30-count linen. If you adjust your linen count, you will need to make the necessary adjustments to the finishing measurements/templates.

Models are stitched with Weeks Dye Works Cotton Floss (DMC equivalents provided):

Weeks Dye Works Cotton Floss (DMC) - 5 yard skeins:
Carrot (3853) - 1 skein
Cayenne (777) - 1 skein
Clockwork (921) - 2 skeins
Curry (3820) - 1 skein
