The square stitch is such a versatile stitch to learn! It gives you the same finish and appearance of a ‘loomed’ piece of beadwork, without having to secure several threads. If you enjoyed our Beaded Cake Topper, you will be sure to enjoy creating these emoji earrings and be familiar with the technique. We always start with the longest, or widest, row in the design. It’s easier to decrease our rows than increase, so it makes for a simpler and neater make!
