Learn to knit the linen stitch, also called the fabric stitch, in rows or rounds. I have written out the stitch pattern with process photos, and included a video.
This video will show you the linen stitch worked in rows, and explain how to knit the linen stitch in rounds as well.
Written instructions with photos:
co ~ cast on
k ~ knit
p ~ purl
m1l ~ make 1 left
m1r ~ make 1 right
Pattern in rows:
Co an even number
Row 1: (Slip 1 purl wise with yarn in front, k1) across.
Row 2: (Slip 1 purl wise with yarn in back, p1) across.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 to desired length.
Pattern in rounds:
Co an odd number
Round 1: Slip 1 purl wise with yarn in front, (k1, slip 1 purl wise with yarn in front) across.
Round 2: k1, (Slip 1 purl wise with yarn in front, k1) across.
Repeat rounds 1 and 2 to desired length.
Here are some photos to help as well:
