Waffle Crochet Stitch

Waffle weave crochet and the waffle crochet stitch are one in the same.  This is a really fun, textured technique created by working front post double crochet (Fpdc) stitches on both sides of the fabric in a certain pattern.  Small squares are formed on both sides of the material that resemble, you guessed it, waffles.  Who doesn’t love that? 

The back of your material will have a clearer waffle pattern than the front.

This waffle pattern makes a very textured, heavy material, which is great for so many projects, especially those cold weather projects, like mittens, hats scarves and blankets.

 It’s easy and fun to work and looks great with all kind of yarns.  You’ll want to give this one a try.  I think you’ll really enjoy it.

Here’s a walk-through for a sampler.

Waffle Crochet Stitch


This stitch is worked in multiples of 3 + 2.

Row 1


Work 1 dc in the 3rd chain from the hook.

Work 1 dc in each chain across. (27 dc)

Turn.


Row 2


Ch 3. (This DOES NOT count as the 1st stitch and will not throughout the pattern.)

Work 1 dc in the 1st stitch of the previous row.

*Work 1 Fpdc around the next stitch.

Repeat * to * across.  The last 2 stitches are a Fpdc and a dc in the turning chain.

That’s it, the waffle crochet stitch!

 Now, repeat Rows 2 – 5 once more.

In your projects, you’ll want to repeat rows 2 – 5 to the desired length.



To finish off our sampler, let's repeat Row 2 one more time.


Fasten off and weave in ends.

Look at those squares, don't you love it!
