It looks easy, but if it’s your first time knitting Linen stitch, as is my case, the instructions are not clear enough. The first row is very well explained, but the second row is assumed… I didn’t know how to handle the yarn slipped in front: is it knitted together with the slipped stitch? I am starting all over again for the 3rd time ??I am sorry to be critical but a bit more explanation would have made this class a wonderful one. Thank you for the inspiration,

I love the woven look of these stitches! Wendy is a very good teacher and explains the steps clearly. I enjoyed this class and will watch it again while using my handspun multicolor yarn to follow along.
