Easy - beginner friendly. Only whole cross stitches are used (no partial stitches). Helpful hint: Since the chart is printed on multiple pages, you will notice shaded rows on pages where there is an overlap with the following page. You should not stitch the area of the overlap twice, as it is only for reference so that you can cut and tape pattern pages together to make a larger, more complete chart to work from. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Cross stitching on counted thread fabric (Aida cloth or evenweave fabric). SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 248x248 stitches, or approximately 17.75x17.75"
