Technique Tuesdays

Howdy gang!

It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for the first TECHNIQUE TUESDAY, a series that collects some cool stitches or nifty tricks to use for whatever your little hearts desire.

Today’s technique is the linen stitch for knitting.  If you ever thought to yourself, “gee, I love knitting but I really hate the way knitted goods look,” then listen up.

If you’re working flat, then on an even number of stitches:

Row 1: *Knit 1, slip 1 purlwise with yarn in front; Repeat from * to end. Turn.

Row 2: *Purl 1, slip 1 purlwise with yarn in back; Repeat from * to end. Turn.

To work in the round, again on an even number of stitches:

Round 1: *K 1, slip 1 with yarn in front; Repeat from * around.

Round 2: *Slip 1 with yarn in front, K 1; Repeat from * around.

That’s it!  If you want to try a three-colored linen stitch, check out the full tutorial on Craftsy.
