Canvas mesh sizes

Needlpoint canvas mesh sizes are usually measured in holes per inch (hpi) or in holes per 10cm. Canvas ranges in size from 3.5 to over 30 holes per inch. Rugs and large upholstery coverings would need the larger gauges, whilst fine work requires many more holes to the inch in order to achieve the desired detail. The average size for cushions and chair seats are between 11 and 14 hpi.
