Here it is in all its linen glory! Hundreds of thousands of stitches to go and only about 1500 down.
For this project, I decided to take the time and grid out the whole project before I started. I’ve never done this before, but because of how large this project is I wanted an easier way to count squares (and avoid miscounting and unpicking hundreds of stitches). Each square is 10 x 10 (100 stitches…ah!) and corresponds to the 10 x 10 square on the pattern.
Has anyone else tried gridding out a cross stitch pattern before? How’d it work for you?
