My pattern measures about 6 1/4" X 6 1/2" when finished. I give a color guide, but you choose your colors according to your preferences. Also, I love to use up the colors I have on hand. This allows for your creativity and personal taste. There is no wrong way when you are creating. Please feel free to sell your finished project, if you wish. The pattern is yours to use as you wish. My method for doing punch needle is to use all 6 strands of floss, any and all brands, and the largest tip on the punch. Weavers cloth is essential for this method. Thank you for looking at my patterns.
