Option to stitch with or without the intricate blackstitch design on dress/rag ties.

Model Stitched on:
Fabric: 32 ct Natural Brown Linen by: www.wicheltimports.com (16 ct Amber Aida may be substituted)

Design stitched 2 over 2 threads on Linen (or over 1 square on Aida)

DMC Floss provided by The DMC Corporation www.dmc.com

Fabric Cut Size: Allow 3 inches extra on all sides for framing/finishing (this will add 6" total to your width and height)

DESIGN COUNT:
98 wide x 148 height

DESIGN SIZES:
28 ct Linen (14 ct Aida) – 7 inches wide x 10 5/8 inches height
32 ct Linen (16 ct Aida) – 6 1/8 inches wide x 9 1/4 inches height

STITCHES USED:

Cross Stitch

3/4 Cross Stitch

Backstitch

Running Stitch

Straight Stitch

Double Leviathan (link to instructions included)

Blackwork (Optional)

Modern Blackwork is usually worked as a backstitch, which I prefer. Much easier.

Long ago, Blackwork was done to look the same on both front and back of clothing and used the Holbein Stitch Or Double Running Stitch.

Design printed on 8 ct graph for easy reading.
