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 October 20th, 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: Knit Diagonal Basketweave

This week’s stitch of the week is the knit diagonal basketweave stitch. It may look intimidating at first, but it’s actually a simple, 2 stitch and 2 row repeat! Here’s the basic pattern:

RS row: [Sk 1, k1 tbl without removing from needle, k skipped st, take both sts off needle] across to last st, k1.

WS row: [Sk 1, p1 without removing from needle, p skipped st, take both sts off needle] across to last st, p 1.
