How To Crochet the Linen Stitch (photo + video tutorial)

The linen stitch is a fun and easy stitch to work up.  It looks especially great with multi color stripes or variegated yarns and is totally reversible.  Included in this tutorial is a step by step photo tutorial and a full video tutorial which includes how to change colors too!

For this tutorial I used a G (4.0 mm) hook and some worsted weight yarn, but you can try any yarn you like!

Step 1: Begin by putting a slip knot on your hook.
Step 2: Make any even number of chains (I did 12 in this tutorial)
Step 3: Work a single crochet in the second chain from the hook.
Step 4: Chain 1
Step 5: Skip the next chain, and in the chain after that, work a single crochet.  Repeat steps 4 and 5 until you reach the end of the row.
Note: If you want to switch colors before moving onto step 6, fasten off and tie on a new color.
Step 6 (row 2): Chain 1 and turn.

Step 7: Work a sc in the first st.
Step 8: Work a sc in the first ch 1 space (from the previous row).
Step 9: Ch 1, then work a sc in the next ch 1 space.  Repeat step 9 until you reach the end of the row.
Step 10: Work a sc in the last sc.
Step 11 (row 3): Tie on a new color yarn (if desired), ch 1 and turn.
Step 12: Work a sc in the first st.

Step 13: Chain 1, then work a sc in the ch 1 space (from the previous row)
Step 14: Repeat step 13 across to the last ch 1 space.
Step 15: Work a sc in the last sc of the row.

To rows 2 and 3 until desired height.  (swatch shown above is 10 rows tall)
