Figure 8 shows you how your yarn looks on the back when beginning your Half Cross Stitch.
Lace your squares together in a cube shape by working over the thread end in a similar fashion bas the half cross stitch but the thread will actually lay between the squares. Lace 4 of the squares together. Then take one of the remaining squares and lace it to the top of the first square. Continue lacing it to the other 3 squares, forming a box, using the Christmas Green yarn. Begin lacing the remaining square to the bottom of your box. Before you completely lace this square in place, slip the jingle bells inside the box. Finish lacing the box completely, pull your needle and thread through several stitches and cut the thread off. See Fig. 9.
Add a loop of gold thread to a corner for hanging.
