The way I'm doing the linen stitch is:

CO an even number of sts
Row 1: (K1, wyif sl1) repeat to end of row, ending with sl1
Row 2: (P1, wyib sl1) repeat to end of row, ending with sl1

Stitches are slipped purlwise

This link should open a PDF file which I've printed out. The BO she recommends is unusual IME.

The link worked for me on preview but just in case, it's from this page, 2nd paragraph under the first illustration.

This half linen stitch was actually what I had in mind when I came across the video and decided to try the 2 color pattern. I'm now stitching up my Kindle case. Maybe I'll get it done tonight.
