Cross Stitch Calculators

I have been a cross stitch fan since I was introduced to this needlework as a young teen. 

Starting a new project was always exciting, but I also found it a bit overwhelming when I had to start dealing with the numbers and the very difficult calculations related to thread count, fabric size, stitch size, and changing metric to our conventional system (and vice versa!).

I wish I had access to the cross stitch calculators that we have found for you to make your projects simpler. No more scribbles on scrap paper to try to figure the math!

One of the calculators can assist you if you use fabric or threads manufactured in a foreign country.  

This is where the metric system comes in; if you had the poor instruction at school that I had when it came to converting to metrics, you understand the problems stitchers can stumble upon.

You will also find a handy calculator for counted work which will help you determine the size of your fabric based on frame size and the amount of fabric you’d like left around your design. 

This calculator can also determine how big your stitches will be based on the fabric weave of threads per inch, the number of threads you will be stitching across, stitches per inch, and the thread. This will insure you have determined the format of your stitching before you begin.

There is also a link to a wonderfully useful circle and cylinder calculator.  If you would like to make a roll or circular pin cushion, this calculator will help you calculate any size, based on the radius, diameter and circumference of the surface of the circle.

You will find another cross stitch calculator that requires you to input the number of stitches per inch, the number of threads each stitch covers (usually one for aida and two for linen), and how much extra fabric you want for a border and finishing.

The calculator will then output the size of the stitched area, the size of the cut fabric, the size of the tapestry needle, and the number of strands of floss for stitching.

Very handy indeed!

Another useful calculator below will assist you if you want to determine the size of the finished design on a certain fabric. Counted cross stitch and blackwork have a chart to follow for the design. The squares on the chart for your design are not usually the same size as the squares of the fabric you are working with.

The pattern will tell you the size of the design based on a certain weave of fabric.

However, if you wish to make your design larger or smaller, this calculator will tell you which fabric count that you will need. This page also has iPhone and android apps to calculate fabric size.

We also have a fabric size calculator which shows you the size of a pattern design on nine different fabric counts at once. Take a look! You will just love this one!

Our list wouldn’t be complete without a floss conversion calculator.  This is used to help you convert multiple floss codes from the popular brands such as J & P Coats, Anchor, Buciilla, Dimensions, Candamar, Sullivans, and DMC to any of the others. 

You will be able to accurately match colors from one brand to another.
