HY&C Stitch #5

I forgot to post September’s stitch so I posted that last week. This is October’s stitch and it is one of my favorite stitches. It can be used to create so many different looks just by changing how often you change color. It’s called by many names: linen, woven, moss, and granite. And probably a few I’m not aware of. I tend to use woven and linen the most and will use them interchangeably in this post. But first, what does it look like?

Linen stitch, changing color for 1 row.

The multiple for this stitch is any even number. So chain any multiple of two and then follow the tutorial below until you reach your desired size.
