The linen stitch is my favorite knit stitch. Here is an unfinished bag I made with peaches and cream varigated cotton. I love what the linen stitch does to varigated yarn how the stripey effect is really broken up and the honeycomb pattern that emerges. I have trouble though deciding which side I like the best. I'd like to finish this bag with a lining- but I hate to cover up the "wrong" side of the work. Just to avoid any confusion- the solid pink side panels were knitted perpendicular to the linen stitch panel.
