Every year I do a cr. st. pilow for my golf group gift exchange. I am so flattered and pleased by the attention and exchanges it receives. Now they keep asking if I am going to do another this year I am making one on 11 aida. I am just starting it and wondered how many threads to use. I thought perhaps 4, but would love to have some input. Don't think I have used 11 count before. Stitching

Hmmm, have I used 11ct??? I have no idea. Do a test spot using 3 and 4, and see which you like. Depending on the design and how dense you want it, I'm guessing 4 would be ideal....

thanks and of course. Sometimes the obvious is not obvisious. I tried both and becasue it will be a pillow, I will use 4 threads. Will show you when it is completed.
