The linen stitch is a beautiful knitted stitch that creates a woven-look fabric. In a scarf, you get patterning on both sides and the edges don't "curl". Because of its complex finished look, people will wonder, "how did you do that?" The linen stitch is also a nice pattern for placemats and table runners. In this sampler class, you'll learn how to knit the linen stitch and you'll have an opportunity to use mix yarns in different colour combinations to make a cute "mini" placemat for your coffee/tea cup. You'll learn how to read a pattern, count your gauge and make fringe as you go. Prerequisites: you know how to knit and purl, cast on and cast off.
bring up to six yarns in the same weight (we recommend a DK weight or bigger) in different colours. Coordinated colours always look nice but you can have some fun and experiment by combining colours that you might not pair together otherwise. Variegated, striping and handpainted yarns are a lot of fun, too. Bring circular knitting needles (40–80 cm) in a size that works well with your yarn.
