Here’s the center block for the top, a big bold lower case e. The alphabet charted below, is Computer 24 from Tink’s Alphabets Tantalizing and Terrific.

Make all the Hungarians first, using six strands; then go back and using only three strands, make the little Cross Stitches. This will distribute the colors nicely.
One last note about using limited edition or discontinued colors: If you are planning a large project using them, by more than you think you will need, you may not be able to find them. If you don’t have a project in mind, pick up a skein or two to use for small projects and as accents. I positively adore this color with the flashes of bright among the vivid greens, but I won’t even find more, so I hoard it and only use it for small things like this so that it will last.
