Here we go! It is in Finnish but the point is easy to find out.
If you stitch it all according to the chart
Määrä shows the meters you need the certain thread.
If you are using Aida 14 Count,
use 2 strand for cross stitches
and 1 strand for back stitches.
When working with Variegated shades
make each individual stitch ready before moving on.
That makes it all to stay in balance
and let the thread to be shown out tranquil.
