    These dishtowels look really complicated to make, don't they? I love that because, just like you want hard things to look easy, it's a great coup to make easy things look difficult! These three stitch patterns all come from Barbara Walker's classic Treasury of Knitting Patterns and are created by the simple technique of hiding yarns behind slipped stitches. There's no tricky stranding or two-hand knitting or even issues of tension; there's just the easy matter of slipping stitches and watching as amazing patterns emerge! Slip stitch color patterns are terrific for scarves (check out Laura's gorgeous Reversible Stripes Scarf), sweaters, blankets and even dishtowels. For these, I looked for patterns that would evoke traditional kitchen textiles: no-nonsense designs with the geometry of vintage linens. And for a yarn that would match these hard-working stitch patterns I chose Louet's Euroflax 100% linen. As tough and absorbent as any fiber around, linen is a great friend to have over your shoulder when you're cooking up something good! You can pick up all the Euroflax linen you'll need with our Yarn for Slip Stitch Dishtowels kit. Choose either this crisp and classic Indigo colorway or our Natural palette of earthy neutrals. Either way, happy slip stitching! -Whitney

    How to-different stitches

    My favorite stitch, Linen Stitch: Works on an even number of stitches. Row 1: *Knit 1, slip 1 with yarn in front. Repeat from * across, ending with a knit 1. Row 2: *Purl 1, slip 1 with yarn in back. Repeat from * across, ending with a purl 1. Repeat these two rows for pattern.
