    Yes do you have a pattern for your linen stitched dish towels or a rough guide to how many stitches you cast on and how long you knitted for lenght wise?

    Thank you

      I cast on 40 stitches.
      Work linen stitch for 50 rows.
      Bind off.

      Linen Stitch Pattern:
      Row 1: *Knit 1, slip 1 with yarn in front. Repeat from * across, ending with a slipped stitch.

      Row 2: *Purl 1, slip 1 with yarn in back. Repeat from * across, ending with a slipped stitch.

      Repeat these two rows for pattern. When slipping stitches, always slip as if to purl.

      Let me know if you have any questions!

    Kristen, Thank you for the pattern info both my kids moved out and I have been knitting dish towels but loved yours… Thank you I am off to a getting a good stock pile made! I have a question my daughter wants me to make a pair of convertable mittens for her that are fingerless ( she rides) and I am having a hard time finding a good pattern the one I did find I think is called broadway but the pattern is confusing to read. Any thoughts or ideas would be welcome.
    Thank you
