Waffle Stitch

I have added the waffle stitch to my stitch category. I have used a worsted weight #3 yarn but as it is quite a chunky design to crochet you may find it crochets up better using a slightly thinner yarn like sport weight.

I’ve worked the swatch with just one color, but lots of combinations can be made by using more colors as well, try changing color every two rows for a stripy look.

Make things with this pretty pattern for around your home ie cushion covers, lapghans or bags etc.
