How to Knit the Linen Stitch 2 Yarn Colors with Free Written Pattern and Video Tutorial by Studio Knit.

Today we are knitting up the 2 Color Linen Stitch Pattern. Using two colors of yarn, this unique and intricate stitch pattern really pops!

This pattern creates a really beautiful flat, thin piece of knitting, similar to linens! It has a lot of visual interest but it is simply a 4-row repeat of knits, purls, and slipped stitches.
