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.

Our first stitch will be a really simple and basic one: garter stitch. This is a great stitch and used from beginners to advanced. This will likely be your first stitch pattern since it is simply to knit every row. That’s really it. The front and the back will look the same.
