Knitting: 2 colour linen stitch

For such a simple pattern, this took 3 or 4 goes to get right. Firstly, you don’t get the right effect if you’re using too fine a wool. Secondly, it’s too easy to get distracted and make mistakes (I listen to podcasts while I’m learning new stitches). But once you get into the swing of it, you’ll fly through.
