  1. I love the stained glass look too!  Looks like Examples 4 and 19 are both made using my pattern (20) actually.  And I crocheted Example 1 using Julene’s pattern with my color choices.  Thanks for the mention!  I’m working on a stained glass coat pattern right now – watch for it!  http://www.ravelry.com/designers/julie-yeager
