Traditional stiff Aida cloth, with 6 holes (count) per inch. While 14 count is typical for adult cross stitch, 6 count (with less holes) is the ideal cloth for children's cross-stitch and can be used easily without a hoop.
In Waldorf education cross-stitch is integral to the 4th grade handwork curriculum and this is the cloth used. The children (both boys and girls) create their own symmetrical designs then transfer them to graph paper with each block of the grid representing a square on the Aida cloth fabric. The completed cross-stitched piece can then be stitched to create bookmarks, pincushions, pencil cases, pouches and more. Great for improving fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
