I have a cross stitch pattern I purchased years ago that is stitched on 32 count linen over 2 squares. What size aida would that be equivelant to? Linen is dang expensive unless you get a boring color so I thought maybe aida would work.

You just divide the linen count by two to get the aida count.  So you could use 16 count aida instead.

Enjoy

You may want to double check that it doesn't have a lot of fractional stitches -- splitting those blocks in aida can be a real pain. If it does, and you still want to stitch it on aida, if the original was 32 count linen, you want 16 count aida, and if you're using fractional stitches, you may find a sharp needle helps for those!
