This is a great project for the beginner as it concentrates on stitches and is done with non-strandable threads. Those threads include 4 colors of perle cotton #5, Rhapsody, 2 sizes of Goldrush, 3 colors of Kreinik and one ribbon floss. The cut canvas size is 12 x 14″. Snap this up at this price as the regular price on this is much higher now ($11). A non-beginner could fill in the whole area with bargello.
