I received the following suggestion when I wanted to do collar/cuffs 
on fabric which would have been very difficult to work with as 
counted --

use fine count waste canvas - attach waste canvas to back of fabric - 
work from the back, as if it were the front, except for the knots - 
when finished, eliminate the waste canvas
