Similar to the Linen Stitch, the Two-Color Half Linen Stitch is a pattern which uses the slipped stitch technique to produce a woven look. Knitted in a four-row repeat, this stitch is a very fast knit and is perfect for “TV knitting.” This pattern is done in two colors but can be easily modified to accommodate one color. If you like the traditional Linen Stitch, then you might also enjoy the Two-Color Half Linen Stitch.
