Today's tutorial is on the Knit Linen Stitch. This stitch is super simple to knit with just a 2 row repeat so it's great for beginners! I will provide instructions on working this stitch in rows.
A separate post and video for working the Linen Stitch in the round here!
It's important that you make sure your slip stitches are not tight or it'll pull your stitches together.
Yarn. I'm using Knit Pick's Tuff Puff Super Bulky Wool in the videos
Appropriate needle size (US 13 or US 15 for the super bulky yarn)
US 15 Handmade Needle set I'm using in the video is from Art of Siberia on Etsy.
