Like others have said you can use any pattern on any count of fabric. To know how much fabric that you need the pattern will tell how many stitches wide and long it is, take lets say the width count of your pattern divide that number by the count of your fabric. This will give you the size of fabric needed for the pattern you then need to add 6" for easement and framing. Do the same for the length of the pattern.

Question: Decreasing the Size of a Cross Stitch Pattern

I want to add a flip flop picture to another cross stitch project. I have the pattern, but it is too big to add to my existing work. Is there a way to decrease the size of the flip flop pattern? Both projects are on 14 inch cloth.
