Stitch of the Week: 3

Linen Stitch

The linen stitch is so much easier then it looks. If you can knit and purl then you can do this stitch.

Right side
Wrong side

YF- move yarn to the front of work

YB- move yarn to the back of work

SL- slip stitch

Cast on an even amount.

Row 1: (right side) *k1, yf, sl 1, yb; rep from * to end.

Row 2:(wrong side) *p1, yb, sl 1, yf; rep from * to end.

Repeat these two rows.

yf, sl 1, yb right side

Moving the yarn to the front and back wraps the slipped stitch making the unique design. This makes for a pretty dense fabric that is great for scarves, cowls and dish towels.

I found this great book called 750 Knitting Stitches The Ultimate Knit Stitch Bible and it inspired me to learn what all I can do with a simple knit and purl. Every week I’ll show you the stitch and take it step by step. It will start pretty simple and get more difficult. Get you a book and you can follow along!
