Chain Link Sampler Square

Image of Chain Link Sampler Square Designed by Julie A. Bolduc

This is the first pattern I designed to be specifically a sampler square. I have also designed a baby afghan using this stitch pattern and 2 colors but you need to be a member to be able to get that pattern.

It has come to my attention that this pattern stitch already exists on another web site. : ) Priscilla Hewitt, has come up with this technique first. I had no idea she had come up with this pattern stitch first. Really! She made a sampler square as well.
