NES StitchAlong Floss List

Welcome to the master list! I will keep this page updated with the upcoming month's floss requirements, the HINT for what is coming next, as well as a master list for the whole year!

The hint for November's blocks are:

"He flies through the air with the greatest of ease"

and

"There's a stranger out to find you"

November Floss Requirements (DMC numbers - you should have leftovers of some of these!):

310 321 498
798 813 825
913 972 975
3771 3865

 

Here is the MASTER LIST for the whole year - it's extensive! Multiple skeins where noted - the amount needed is based on using three strands; if you plan to only use two you won't need as much! 

310 x8 317 321 x2 350 351 353 367 400
420 437 445 451 469 498 518 519
535 550 552 554 605 644 676 701 x2
725 728 729 738 742 798 801 813 x2
815 825 893 899 906 907 x2 910 x2 913
918 922 927 964 972 x3 975 x3 3771 3799
3803 3804 3805 3846 x2 3849 3865 x3

 

IMPORTANT: if you are buying your own fabric, here are the requirements!

Every block is 60x60 stitches, and there will be a total of 24. If you are planning to do 12, four rows of three blocks with one stitch between, on 14-count, you will need a piece that is 19"x23". This includes a 3" margin on all sides. If you are doing all 24, six rows of four blocks with one stitch in between, on 14-count, you will need a piece 33"x24", which includes a 3" margin. IF YOU ARE USING A DIFFERENT COUNT, use the calculator at www.crosstitch.com to be sure you get the right size! Use the calculations listed above for 60 stitch squares.

For color, I recommend something light but with enough color that white will still show up, lots of white in NES sprites! A light blue, tan, green, or silvery color will work great!

I can't wait to see your progress! Be sure to use the hashtag #nintendoSAL so everyone can have a blast together!!
