This pattern was adapted from the Bucilla Dictionary of Magic-Loom Weaving Stitches, pattern 11. My version doesn’t look like the original, but that’s where I got the idea. The Bucilla Magic-Loom has 32 warps and 32 wefts (see this post for more information on the Bucilla Magic-Loom), so I had to trim out the extra warp and weft. This is what I came up with…

“Bucilla 11, modified, variation 1” shown here on the loom, front and back. Notice the extra long floats on the back of the square.

Staggered Stars — Note: this pattern is practically the same as “Like a Diamond”, but its spacing is slightly different. (Can’t find “Like a Diamond” for the 31 x 31 loom, so I may need to post that next!)

Recommended two-color warping: L1-2 in lighter color, L3-4 in darker color. (Don’t use high contrast colors—see photo at bottom of post.)

Shout out to Brian Whitley for naming this pattern; his was one that jumped out at me as I read, and stuck with me later on when I wasn’t at the computer. I had a hard time selecting a name from the many excellent suggestions made by the members of the Facebook Pin Loom Weaving Support Group. (I’d run out of ideas for names and had resorted to calling my new designs Uuuuh 1, Uuuuh 2, etc. “A Run on Diamonds” was formerly known as Uuuuh 4b.)
