Today's stitch is a great variation of Reverse Basketweave. I recall when I was first encouraged to use this for a window on a small Halloween house. It makes me giggle to think about how nervous I was. I was convinced that it was too open to be a window. I was wrong.
As with most window stitches, I recommend a single strand metallic such as Petite Silk Lame (for 13-mesh) or Kreinik Metallics Very Fine Braid (#4) (for 18-mesh).
