Guilt Works

The original plan for today's post was Reverse Basketweave, a great glass stitch.  After all, It is the month of glass.  However, I felt guilty I already shared Reverse Basketweave in a post last year. So, here's where guilt works...and you benefit.  Here's a link to the original post about Reverse Basketweave.  Summary:  it's great for glass.  Please use it.

And here is how I compensated for my original plan...a bonus glass stitch.  I named it the Square Stitch.  It should be obvious why I did so.

The coverage is more substantial than it appears.  It works best in a medium sized window.  The next two diagrams are variations of this stitch.  Each offers an increasingly open perspective.

This variation includes boxes that do not share any sides.  It's good for a medium to large glass areas, such as a jar full of candy.  

The last example skips a full row between squares.
