How to stitch on Dublin Linen
I am an experienced cross stitcher, however, I have never stitched on linen fabric. I recently purchased a beautiful pattern that requires that I use 25 count dublin linen. The pattern is stitched over one thread instead of two.
My question is, when stitching, will my crosses have a thread in the middle of each one instead of a square. I'm a little confused about this. Any help with my question is greatly appreciated.

Yes, Debbie, you would have a fabric thread in the middle instead of a block. If you haven't stitched on evenweave or linen fabrics before you might find the following page on the site useful...
