How do you scale cross stitch?
Count the number of stitches across and then divide it by the thread count of your fabric. Do the same down and you have the size of your finished project.
How long does it take to finish cross stitch?
Another factor to consider is the number of stitches that you can do in a day. If you run an approximate of 300 stitches a day, it will take you three months to finish one project. The size of your design can also affect productivity time. More significant projects can even take more than three months to complete.
How much thread do I need for cross stitch?
Cross Stitch uses 6 strand cotton floss or pearl cotton floss. 6 strand cotton floss is dividable, and 2 strands are normally used at a time, so one skein of 6 strand floss can go a long way.
