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 BOTH of October's blocks are:
"It's a month for mighty men"
October Floss Requirements (DMC numbers - you should have leftovers of some of these!):
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|
|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!!
