This fun Linen Stitch pattern is made using slip stitches and changing colors. It is actually a pretty easy stitch to master which creates a beautiful fabric; it’s actually one of my favorite stitches. The Linen Stitch Square is part of the Harmony Blanket Blog Hop KAL, and you can find more details HERE. Use this square to create a blanket, or use the stitch pattern to create just about anything you want.
