Been lurking for a while, and I must say you craftsters are AWESOME!  This is my first post so I apologize if it's in the wrong place, repeat, etc.  Searched and didn't find anything, so here it goes...

Found a needlepoint pattern I would like to make for a friend for Christmas.  It's made in 8-count plastic canvas, but given that I can't find 8 and went ahead and bought 7-count, is that going to be a big deal?  I was wondering if I can convert the pattern count to my count somehow.  Its the nintendo ds lite case here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127932.0

Thanks! Wink

Yes, the size of the case will be different on 7 ct. vs. 8 ct. canvas.  The 7 ct. canvas case will be a little larger than the one made on 8 ct.  Divide the number of stitches across the width of the pattern by 8 and that will give you the size of the original case. Divide the stitches again by 7 and that will tell you what yours will come out to.  Do the same thing with the number of stitches across the length.

If it is only a matter of 1/4 to 1/2 inch, I would say it is not going to make a difference.  If it is more than that, I would alter the pattern - you don't want the nintendo sliding around in the case too much.

If you need help altering the pattern, let me know and I will make some suggestions. It looks pretty simple to me.

Good luck - jeanfrances
