The Gadsden flag, with its "Don't Tread On Me" motto, is an instantly recognizable icon from America's early history. The golden field and coiled rattle snake were used as one of the first flags of the United States, only later replaced with the current Stars and Stripes design. Cross stitch pattern measures 212 stitches wide by 190 stitches high.
How much fabric do I need?
To calculate the amount of fabric you will need for your project, divide the number of stitches by the stitch count of the fabric you wish to use. The higher the count of your fabric, the smaller your piece will be. Some examples appear below. Remember to leave several additional inches as a border on each side, to facilitate framing your project when it is finished.
