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!
I am using the leftovers of my Madelinetosh Lace in Mansfield Garden Party, and this colorway is PERFECT for lovely linen stitch.
I love it!
To make a bookmark just like mine:
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.
