Stitch Count - 235 H X 145 W

Model is stitched on 40-count Fawn hand-dyed fabric by Lakeside Linens with one strand over-two linen threads.

Model is stitched with Crescent Colours Hand Dyed Floss (now Classic Colorworks) Belle Soie 12-strand silk (DMC equivalents provided).

Crescent Colours/Classic Colorworks Belle Soie 12-strand silk:
Butterscotch (729) - 1 skein
Cranberry (814) - 1 skein
Creme de Menthe (500) - 1 skein
Fern Frond (501) - 1 skein
Sister Scarlet (816) - 1 skein
Teddy Bear (433) - 1 skein
Violet Water (White) - 1 skein

Floss estimation is for stitching as directed on 40-count fabric with one strand of floss over-two threads of linen. DMC equivalents are only approximate and have been adjusted, as there are no exact equivalents for hand over-dyed fibers.

Belle Soie Silk to Crescent Colours/Classic Colorworks Cotton Floss Conversion

Belle Soie 12-strand silk (Crescent Colours/Classic Colorworks cotton floss in parenthesis):
Butterscotch (Ye Old Gold)
Cranberry (Bandana)
Creme de Menthe (Erin Go Emerald)
Fern Frond (Desert Mesquite)
Sister Scarlet (Apple Fritter)
Teddy Bear (Bramble Bush) - there is no real close match, Bramble Bush seems to work best.
Violet Water (Toasted Marshmallow) 

***A little disclaimer: I highly recommend using the Belle Soie silks, if you are wanting the same look as the model. The DMC colors will obviously not provide the same shading and are only approximate. The Crescent Colors/Classic Colorworks cotton floss will provide the shading, however, the colors are not exact matches. I have converted the colors using the dye-lots I have on hand - the stitcher (or shop where purchasing supplies) may need to make slight adjustments to make the conversions more personally "eye pleasing".

Package contains a master chart and an enlarged chart printed on four pages for easy viewing.

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

Stitches:
