1) Stitch the quantity of the design. Say, it is 8000
2) Rate of per unit. (it may vary depends on the design, also the availability of the factory). Say, it is $0.25/unit.

At first we will find out the unit per dozen. (Stitch qty X 12 / 12000)

Rules: = (Stitch quantity X 12 ) / 12000 X Rate per unit
= 8000 X 12 / 12000 X $0.25
=96000 / 12000 X $0.25
= 8 X $0.25
