Thread for needlepoint

I really appreciated the answer to my question regarding the number of threads used for the canvas. I wish I had found this site sooner because I would only be using 2, instead of 3 threads on my 12" needlepoint canvas. However, I haven't done anything wrong and it will work out fine. I will be back.

The count is how many holes per inch. You choose how many threads you use based on how lightly or heavily you want the canvas covered.
