Linen Stitch

I was on ravelry the other day and came across the linen stitch. I really like it. It looks like linen fabric. It looks woven. It's pretty. I'm making a dishcloth right now to see how it knits up and how difficult it is. It's rather easy. I just have to pay attention or I slightly mess up. There are apparently a few different ways to make it. I like this way. It's not difficult. It's actually rather fun!

Linen Stitch

Cast on a multiple of two stitches.

Row 1 (RS): *K1, bring yarn for forward, Slip 1, bring yarn back* repeat across row.

Row 2 (WS): *P1, bring yarn back, Slip 1, bring yarn forward* repeat across row.

Repeat these two rows.

This stitch looks really cool if you change colors every two rows.
