Stitch Count - 274 x 182
Category: Large

DMC Colors Used: 1

The pattern is stitched with just one color - I recommend DMC 310 (black) but any dark color will do. I highly recommend stitching it on a white fabric as the white background will help to highlight the pattern and really make it stand out. However, you can choose any color fabric you'd like!

Stitching areas are rounded up to the nearest full inch (example a pattern that is 10.35" x 10.72" is rounded to 11" x 11") to ensure you get enough fabric.

You'll need extra fabric around the stitched pattern to allow for framing needs. The following table calculates how much fabric you'll need for this specific pattern based on the fabric count you choose and how much extra framing fabric you want.
