Stitch Guide: Linen Stitch

Linen stitch has lately become one of my favorite stitches.  When knit in a solid it has a subtle woven look to it, in a variegated you get even more impact.  This stitch isn't stretch and has a lot of structure to it which is perfect for bags and straps.  Linen stitch has a right side and a wrong side, but it is a great stitch to have in your bag of tricks.
