Welcome to the details behind my current favourite stitch. The waffle stitch is a soft, squishy pattern that adds loads of texture to projects. You’ll see this used in blankets or kitchen dishcloths. It is a simple 2 row repeat but it is the front post double crochet that bring this pattern to life. Take a look and try it out yourself!
dc: double crochet
fpdc: front post double crochet
Ch multiple of 3+2
Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook and in each st across, turn.
Row 2: Ch 2, turn *dc into the first stitch, dc in next stitch, fpdc in next stitch*, repeat from * to * across row until last stitch
Row 3: Ch 2, turn *fpdc into the first stitch, fpdc in next stitch, dc in next stitch*, repeat from * to * across row until last stitch
Repeat rows 2 & 3 to desired length!
Don’t worry, if you need a bit more info to get you going we’ve included a video tutorial that will walk you through the two rows above. You’ve got this!
