I was approached by a group of ladies who were wanting to do a stitch-a-long of Twisted Band Sampler, but there were several who were hesitant because of the specialty stitches contained in it. They asked me very nicely if I would mind doing a cross stitch only version of the design - so I have.
I tried to stay as faithful to the original layout as I could and have only altered the bands that contained specialty stitches.

This is not an exact conversion but it's pretty darn close. :)
Floss estimates are for 32 count fabric using one strand of thread for stitching over two. If using DMC, you might need to bump that to two strands – it doesn't cover quite as well. If you do use two strands, you may need a second skein of the greens and golds.
