Knit Linen Stitch (in the round) Tutorial

Today's tutorial is on the Knit Linen Stitch. I've used this stitch in my Knit Tyler Slouch Beanie (pattern available soon!). This stitch is super simple to knit with just a 2 round repeat so it's great for beginners! I will provide instructions on working this stitch in the round. Click here or below link to watch the tutorial knitted in rows.

It's important that you make sure your slip stitches are not tight or it'll pull your stitches together.




co – Cast on

st(s) - Stitch(es)

k – Knit

sl - slip a stitch (purl-wise)

wyif - With yarn in front

rep – Repeat


co any odd number of sts, add stitch marker and join careful not to twist sts.


I use the invisible joining method which requires 1 additional st


Round 1: k1, *sl1 wyif, k1. Rep from * around.

Round 2: sl1 wyif, *k1, sl1 wyif. Rep from * around.

Rep Rounds 1 & 2 until desired size. That's it! How simple is this beautiful stitch!?

Your "Linen Stitch in the Round" tutorial was so helpful! I am no longer confused on how to work Row 2, and following. Curious about how you would add a 2nd color to it? I'm guessing you would make the even numbered Rows the 2nd color and leave the odd Rows with the main color?

Thanks, again!
