enlarging needlepoint patterns

by Kathy
(Sarasota, Fl., USA)

I love your charted needlepoint patterns, but would like them to be bigger than 3.6". Is there a way to enlarge the pattern?

Your website is wonderful. Years ago a lady from England gave me a lace picture, but I've never been able to find out how to do it. This will be fun!

Thank you!

If you were to stitch the patterns on a larger count Aida or canvas then they would turn out bigger, Kathy, perhaps 11 count Aida or 10 count canvas.

You could also stitch two instances of the pattern side by side, with two more below that, to create a larger finished project.

I hope these ideas help.

Regards,

Carol
