Question: With the different size aida cloth, like 11-ct, 14-ct, 16ct etc., is there a rule for how many strands of thread to use when cross stitching?
6 count (or MONK Cloth): Use the full 6 Strands of Embroidery floss (or use YARN) for X-stitch and 3 Strands for Backstitch
11 count: Use 3 or 4 Strands for X-stitch, and 1 Strand for Backstitch
14 count: Use 2 Strands for X-stitch, and 1 Strand for Backstitch
16 or 18 count: Use 1 or 2 Strands for X-stitch and 1 Strand for Backstitch
