to be honest with you i will follow the pattern most of the time. But i some times will add a strand for filling out a dress or a piece of fruit, if the pattern calls for 2 I may use 3.
: I use 2 strands for most cross stitching 14,
: 16 18 and ALWAYS 1 thread for backstitching
: unless it says differently. 8 and 10 ct. I
: usually use all 6 strands. I have found to
: follow the directions exactly as the pattern
: says. There is a reason they have stitched
: it that way:-)
