Stitch count: 435 X 363 The recommended fabric is 28ct R & R Winter Brew. Stitched on 28ct, the actual stitched area is 31 1/4" W X 26" H. You must add the amount of fabric border desired to that measurement. The 36" part of a 1/2 yard does not add sufficient border for framing. The standard is 3" border all the way around, but only 3" can make it harder to frame larger pieces. It is recommended that you purchase a full yard so you can add the amount of border you desire. We have a limited supply of 28ct Winter Brew available.
