Hello again, I've started another pattern, this one for my youngest daughter. It is Citrine, by Anderson. I have a question and I'm hoping someone can help me out. This pattern calls for Kreinik #4 (it says dmc 032) and B5200. I bought S5200, but I'm not sure that will cut it. If someone knows what I can convert these threads to, that I can buy from Michaels or Hobby Lobby I would really appreciate it, I would prefer not to order online unless I absolutely have to.
The pattern is done on 28 count evenweave, 1 over 1. I will try to post a picture sometime in the next couple weeks.

Thank you,

B5200 is a bright, bright white DMC floss. You'll find it at both Michael's and Hobby Lobby. If I remember correctly, it is placed up at the very front of the list, just before or after the 100 series of colors.

If your Kreinik #4 braid says that it is color 032.. then that's a pearl color with kind of a white/pale bluish sheen. At those stores, you could also look at the DMC Light Effects thread and use E5200 (again.. a metallic/shiny white effect.)

Hope that helps!

There is a lot of info on the subs for Kreinik at the HAED BB. Check this thread: and this one:
for starters.
