But will you look at this: I've become slightly besotted and obsessed with these repeating patterns. So much so that I've actually finished two 2" squares already and getting close to finishing the third one. There is something really pleasing about having different patterns in neighbouring squares. :-)
And it's not difficult at all, if a little time consuming, but not enough to put me off. If you can do back stitch, that's all you need to know. If you're a beginner like me, it's probably easiest to use some aida/cross stitch fabric just to get a feel for the stitching and keep things easier to count.
Starting in the centre of whatever shape you're filling, seems to be the general advice. And use one strand of six stranded floss to get the neatest result.
