It depends on what it is you are tufting and how deep the tufting holes are.

If there is old fabric that you will be taking off, you can use that as a pattern.

There are a few videos on youtube that show how to do tufting. I found them helpful many moons ago.

I've never tufted with mohair.

What have you prepared so far? You say this is a custom build which I take as all new. 3" foam. Do you have the layout done yet? Do you have holes cut in the foam?

So when you get the foam all ready measure including into bottom of the holes and add say 10%. Both vertical and horizontal.
