Circular Square Stitch

String the first round of beads and pass through them again to form a circle.  Start a new round by stringing 2 beads; pass through the last bead of the first round and through the 2 beads just strung.  Repeat all around, passing through the next bead of the preivous round for each 2 new beads strung.  At the end of the round, pass through the whole round again to tighten the beads.  Start a new round by stringing 2 beads; pass through the last bead of the previous round and through the 2 beads just strung.  String 1 bead and pass through the next bead of the previous round and the bead just strung.  Repeat around, stitching 1 or 2 beads to each bead of the previous round, adjusting the count as necessary to keep the work flat.
