This just in! A great "Wee Tip" from Churcmouse Classics!

For Koigu Linen Stitch Scarf
Don't fancy purling? You're not alone. We got this excellent tip from a customer.

When working a linen stitch project that has you cutting your yarn at the beginning and end of every row (like our 'Koigu Linen Stitch Scarf'), at the end of a knit row don't turn your work.

Instead, slide the knitting from the left-hand end of your circular needle to the right-hand end and, with the same side of the work still facing you, start knitting the next row.

Remember, if the previous row started with "knit one, slip one," the next row should start with "slip one, knit one" to offset your slips. No purling required! Pin It

It says not to turn? work on same side just finished .. if I'm reading this correctly?

Or, knit in reverse (I'm working on a large shawl... turning it around is a pain).
