Linen Stitch, Something New!

I decided to try out linen stitch to spread around the yarny love and make a bunch of bookmarks.... so far I have part of one complete. Linen stitch is not quick!

Linen Stitch Bookmark 1.0

I am using the leftovers of my Madelinetosh Lace in Mansfield Garden Party, and this colorway is PERFECT for lovely linen stitch.

Linen Stitch Bookmark 1.1

I love it!

To make a bookmark just like mine:

Laceweight Yarn
Size 3 US Needles

Cast on 17 stitches.

Row 1(Front): K1, P1, *K1, bring yarn to the front (YF), slip 1 purlwise,  bring yarn to the back (YB), repeat from * until 3 stitches remain, K1, P1, K1

Row 2(Back): K1, P1, *YB, slip 1 purlwise, YF, P1 repeat from * until 3 stitches remain, slip 1 purlwise, P1, K1

Repeat these two rows until bookmark reaches desired length, cast off.


  1. I love me some linen stitch. Lovely!

  2. Wow! I love that yarn so much! I can't believe you still have that much yarn left over from your project! The bookmark is lovely,
