Notes

First project using the Linen Stitch. While I love the way the fabric looks, I absolutely cringe at the thought of knitting a large garment in this pattern. So, I knit the first 3” in pattern, and I will continue in stockinette stitch until the point where I add the second color. Then, I will do the blue stripe in Linen Stitch so I can maintain the pretty effect. I have added a garter stitch selvedge to each side as well.
So far I am happy with the modifications. I am enjoying the knitting. I think the two color linen stitch band will be pretty. We’ll see. I should have this done before the end of the year. Again…we’ll see! slightly_smiling_face
