Cross Stitchers - question!

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive October 2006: Cross Stitchers - question!
By Reds9298 on Wednesday, October 11, 2006 - 09:24 pm:

I'm getting ready to start a linen project and my chart does not give the sizing in regular inch dimensions. I was at the needle store tonight and she told me that I just divide the measurements given by the count. I didn't write down what she figured and now I've forgotten it. I'm trying dividing, but it's not coming out right. Anyone know how to do this?

The numbers given in the chart are: 268 x 65
The thread count is: 32ct.

I know that on 30ct. linen, this project FRAMED would be about 20" x 6.75" It will be slightly smaller with the 32ct, but that's a general, and that's framed. I can't come up with anything close to that.
Anyone know how to do this?

Are you trying to figure out how much fabric to buy? I found a cross-stitch calculator. Maybe this will help.
