Stitch of the Month
August 1998: Square Eyelet

by Beth Robertson

This stitch is also known as the Algerian Eye. The size of the stitch can be increased or decreased to fit the desired area. A thinner thread creates a lacy effect while thicker threads create more texture. All stitches are worked from the outside in to the center canvas hole. Come up at odd numbers and go down in the center hole at even numbers.
