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 May 11th, 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 Linen Stitch
This week’s stitch of the week is the knit linen stitch. The simple, 2 stitch and 2 row repeat produces a lovely, flat fabric. It’s really a variation on stockinette, but it almost looks woven!
The idea is to work only half the stitches on each row, slipping the other stitches. In doing so, you create tiny floats on the right side of the work underneath each stitch. Here’s how the pattern works over an odd number of stitches:
Row 1: K1, (sl 1 wyif, k1) across.
Row 2: Sl 1 wyib, (p1, sl 1 wyib) across.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 to desired length. We’ll work through this pattern together, and talk about how to modify it to work in the round.

Lunchtime Live is sort of like a video newsletter. For even more fun, there’s also a Stitches n Scraps email newsletter!
