 Vanessa recently wrote me to let me know she has received this chart from Charles Craft and apparently the gold metallic floss number listed is unclear and is listed as DMC. I suggest using Kreinik #4 braid: 028 citron. Using one strand for the backstitching works beautifully. Alternatively, and if you prefer using DMC or it is more easily available, you can use DMC E3852 gold metallic, also one  strand in the needle.

    Hi Joan,
    I am a little unclear about the Kreinik and what DMC thread it should replace. I am assuming the Kreinik is used for backstitching so should it replace DMC 5282?
    Thank you
