- Using 2 ply Family A Splendor Silk (____________) place compensated Eyelets along the edges and in the corners of each square.

[Hint: If you work the Eyelet as numbered above, you distribute the weight of the threads. For example, if stitched in a clockwise direction working 1:00, 2:00, 3:00 etc. in order all the way to 12:00, then the 1:00 stitch would be against the canvas while the 12:00 stitch would sit upon the other stitches. Try this on the side of your canvas using 4 ply - very obvious where the stitch began and where it ended.]
