What is Lunchtime Live?

Lunchtime Live is a weekly series of live videos on my YouTube channel. It’s a chance for us to chat about what’s new at Stitches n Scraps. Think of it as a video newsletter, where you can participate too! I start each episode with a look at the latest posts on the blog. Then I move on to any announcements and sneak peeks at what’s coming up in the following week. Finally, I end the episode with a demo or short tutorial.

For 2022, the demo portion will be a featured stitch of the week. I’ll show you a different stitch pattern each week, alternating between knit and crochet stitches.

Watch Live, or Watch Later!

Tune in here to watch live at 11:30 am, US Central Time on July 28th, 2022. Join in the conversation with the live chat! You’ll be able to ask questions and leave comments, which I can respond to in the video.

If you can’t make it during the live broadcast, that’s ok – you can watch the full episode after it’s over.

Stitch of the Week: Crochet Wave Stitch

This week’s stitch of the week is the crochet wave stitch. Using stitches of different heights creates a rolling wave pattern that works particularly well with multiple colors.

Wave stitches are more a type of stitch pattern than a specific stitch. The one I’m going to show you is a multiple of 8 stitches plus 1, and looks like the chart below.

The written pattern for this chart is:

Row 1: Ch a multiple of 8+3, tr in 4th ch from hook (skipped chs count as dc), tr in each of next 2 chs, dc in next ch, sc in each of next 3 chs, dc in next ch, [tr in each of next 3 chs, dc in next ch, sc in each of next 3 chs, dc in next ch] across.

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), turn, [tr in each of next 3 sts, dc in next st, sc in each of next 3 sts, dc in next st] across.

Repeat row 2 to desired length.

After learning this basic wave, we’ll explore some of the endless variations!
