Chicken scratch on large check

Sometimes ago I did chicken scratch on 1/6 inch check.it came out nice and this time I wanted to do something in large check.i brought this fabric from shop but the check was quite larger than I intended to buy .it was 1/2inch Check
I bought this 1/2 inch large check fabric from shop and also bought Perle cotton 8 size in blue and white colour.


But the thread was quite thin for this embroid
ery.(blue colour).i also tried using all six strands of embroidery floss.( Double cross stitch ) but it also was very thin .I also had acrylic thread in sea green colour of Perle 5 thickness.then I used local cotton crochet thread by doubling it .the double cross stitch and woven circles in white colour .this looks quite ok. But the woven circles are looking quite large.
