Size of job cross stitch patterns

Almost all the patterns from our stitch a job series are designed for an 5 inch embroidery hoop when you stitch it on Aida 14 count cross stitch fabric.

Always check the product page or pattern page for measurements, because a few patterns are bigger. Bigger sized patterns include the cute crane operator, and real estate agent.

What materials do you need for the stitch a job patterns?

If you are a complete beginner at cross stitch we recommend you to stitch the jobs on an 5 inch embroidery hoop with Aida 14 count cross stitch fabric. Aida 14 count fabric is the most populair cross titch fabric. This fabric has perfect squares, and easy to see holes for each of the 4 corners.

Of course you will also need the DMC mouline indicated in your pattern. If you like to add some sparkle, consider replacing some regular mouline with DMC Etoile floss

Alternative: Create gifts for your co-worker with a finer look

Do you already have some experience as cross stitcher? then you can go for a finer look for your cross stitch project. We recommend that you use an 5 inch embroidery hoop with Evenweave 28 count fabric, stitched over 2. When you stitch over 2, you basically skip one hole and move to the next.
