Waffle Stitch



Stitches used
  • chain
  • double crochet (dc)
  • front post double crochet(fpdc)


Row 1
Chain to required length even number of stitches plus 3 extra 
double crochet into 3rd chain
double crochet to end
3 chain and turn



Row 2 ( forms the pattern!)
1 double crochet
*2 front post double crochet( FPDC)
Wool forward put hook through front of post of the next  double crochet(,not top of stitch) wool over hook and pull though (3 stitches on hook)wool forward pull through 2 wool forward pull through 2.
2 double crochet*
repeat from * to end of row 
3 chain and turn


Row 3


follow pattern set in row 2 only, doing a  double crochet on  top of stitch that is at the back and a front post double crochet in the  front post stitch (see how there is a sticky-outy type stitch? That tells you it's a dc into the post. )
Thats all there is... It's making little squares It's all you'll ever do is those three chain stitches at the start of every row and then double crochet either into the tops or through the posts. If you forget where you are up to look at the next stitch....
Is it straight up or a bit stuck out.  Straight up...into the top.  Stuck out...into the post.....

  1. Hi, I followed your pattern... 1 row dc and 1 row fpdc alternately. I got only the horizontal ridges; no vertical lines that form the waffle pattern. Where am I going wrong? Please help!

  15. Am I the only person that sees a huge error in the first image? LOL It is not surprising that so many people are having issues with the pattern. Good luck, everyone!

  16. I believe I've made a baby blanket with the waffle stitch; the pattern appears to be simple. Would you tell me your crochet hook size & maybe directions for your border? Am I correct in thinking there are 4 rows of DC in the border; not sure what last row is called, but is chain & slip stitch. Looking forward to this afghan. Thank you for sharing, I appreciate it. Thank you.
