In gobelin making, Petit Point refers to one diagonal needlepoint stitch. There are two techniques used for stitching or sewing gobelins. Petit Point 1:1 is when each sign from the chart equals one stitch. Naturally, Petit Point 1:4 means that each sign would equal four stitches arranged in a square. Generally, gobelins done in PPT 1:1 would be more detailed.
