CrossStitch Gridlines Tutorial by crafty-manx CrossStitch Gridlines Tutorial by crafty-manx
Cross Stitch Gridlines Tutorial

I've written this tutorial as an aid to cross stitchers who want to be able to mark their fabric for ease of counting. This is the method I use to mark my fabric for particularly difficult pieces.

I know that there is a lot of flash bounce/washed out color in the photos: the next project I have that is conducive to re-taking these photographs will see this tutorial re-done. (It is also very difficult to photograph your own hands!)

The pieces that appear in the photographs, for those who are curious, are, from the top down:
Fencer Keychains: [link]
Emerald Mermaid: [link]
Regal Blue: [link]

This is a tutorial was originally written several years ago, and appears in the archives of the LiveJournal cross stitch community: [link] Though under a different user name and on a different site, both tutorials are my own work, written and photographed by me. I am not plagiarizing myself.

6/11/2008: Uploaded a new version. Text remains mostly unchanged: I added a note about thread conditioner (which I forgot the first time) and fixed the formatting to make it nicer-looking. Many thanks to ^znow-white, *sleepinglynx, *cl2007, *StudioHarajuku, and all the people in #ArtisanCrafts who offered critique on this tutorial!!
