[HNW] Cross stitch question

If you were working on linen you would be making your normal cross 
stitches over 2 threads.  One aida square is equivalent to 2 threads 
high by 2 threads wide.  You will need to make 4 petite point 
stitches per aida square by piercing a (small) hole into the center 
of the square to stitch into.  The center of the square is equivalent 
to the space marked 5 below.  Hope this helps!
