The Chambord plaid is made with 72 linen squares and 36 Laine Saint-Pierre cards. Extremely amusing to embroider, the colours of the threads and fabrics are very varied and the small squares can be carried everywhere.
You also will need: the Sajou red album n°906, 9 meters of a thick ribbon and a piece of fabric for the back.
This project is embroidered in cross stitch using two strands of embroidery floss over two threads.

The finished plaid measures 99 x 88cm.
You can of course make it smaller, but also larger. If you wish to make it larger,
give priority to the motifs that are embroidered two or three times.
Avoid embroidering the same motif in the same colour.
