I Love Linen Stitch

I have been trying out Linen Stitch and it's awesome.  I'm using the left-overs from these socks and I love the way Linen Stitch blends the colours together, muting the brightness, and how it looks like a woven fabric (which probably explains the name).
Linen Stitch front
Linen Stitch back

Here's the stitch pattern.

Multiple of 2 stitches plus 3

Row 1: *K1, Slip 1 with yarn to front; repeat from * to last stitch, K1
Row 2: P2, *Slip 1 with yarn to back, P1; repeat from * to last 2 stitches, P2

Repeat these two rows for pattern.

That linen stitch is gorgeous. Is it tricky? Does it look the same both sides?

I've added the stitch pattern for you, it's not too tricky.
