The pattern measures 250 stitches X 356 stitches :)
This is a large pattern!! It is cleaned up from a vintage poster. There are no pixelated images, all solid blocks of color. The pattern is in black and white and color. One full sheet pattern, and also enlarged over six pages. The background color is omitted from the pattern, in order to save your ink and your eyes! All empty blocks in the pattern are to use the navy color. You may also choose to use a dark fabric and not stitch the background at all :)
How Big Will Your Project Be, and What Type of Cloth???
The most common type of cloth to stitch on is Aida Cloth. Beginners should use a lower count cloth, as it is easier to see your stitches.
A lower count cloth means that your stitches will be larger than a higher count cloth.. It will also determine how big your finished project will be.
Calculate how large your project will be by dividing the height and width of your project in stitches, by the count of fabric you wish to use. Remember to add a couple or more inches around your fabric where you won't be stitching..
In general the 'count' of fabric you use is how many stitches you will get per inch. For example 14 count Aida Cloth, means you will get 14 stitches per inch, 11 count means you will get 11 stitches per inch :)
