The Country Willow Tutorial Thursday bring us the Linen Stitch from Look At What I Made. The Linen Stitch is a simple stitch. This stitch creates a pretty and dense fabric. This would make a great sweater and baby blanket.
This tutorial includes:
The linen stitch is basically a repetition of *ch,sc*, working into the ch-1 space formed by the ch-1’s in the previous row. You are effectively single crocheting BETWEEN single crochets, giving you a staggered woven look.
Stitches are worked into the ch-1 spaces, NOT the loops of the actual stitches.
One linen stitch = sc + ch into a ch-1 space. The initial Ch 2 at the beginning of each row counts as a ch-1 space (so one linen stitch).
