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 7th, 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: Crocheted Star Stitch
This week’s stitch of the week is the crocheted star stitch. This is one of those stitches that’s much easier to show than describe. Each star is made up of 5 loops and connects to the stitch before it. The first three loops come from the previous star, and the other 2 come from the next two stitches.
The resulting texture is bold and beautiful. Try it out in the Stars and Stripes Washcloth.
Want to take your star stitch to the next level? Try working it in chevrons with this Chevron Star Stitch Spa Waschloth.
