Convert Stitch Count
to Finished Size in Inches


Determining the size of your finished project is as simple as dividing the Stitch Count of the design by the Thread Count of your fabric. If the width of the design is 44 threads, using 11 count Aida will result in a finished width of 4 inches.

44 ÷ 11 equals 4.

The same design will be about 3-1/8 inches wide using 14 count Aida. If you find the perfect design, but it is the wrong size for your purposes, just use fabric with a thread count that will give you what you want.

Use this handy table to work out the details. Or, for those times when you must work on the fly, just remember:

Design Stitch Count ÷ Fabric Thread Count = Finished Size


Just calculate the width and the length. The following table shows the approximate finished measurement in inches, rounded to the nearest eighth of an inch. Be sure to add enough to the length and width of your fabric for display purposes. It's easier to trim too much than to work with too little.
