The Waffle Stitch is a favourite of every crocheter and is a popular choice for making blankets. There is something so satisfying about creating the rows of relaxing stitches and after a few rows, the beautiful textured fabric appears! It is an easy stitch and very addictive to make. I have a tutorial for you today with a slight twist on the regular Waffle Stitch – I am calling it the Crochet Double Waffle Stitch. The combination of just two stitches makes this fun to make.
I used Scheepjes River Washed a light DK yarn for my samples. I also tried some other weight yarns and they were all beautiful! Any weight yarn and matching hook can be used, and you can make gorgeous squishy blankets with this stitch. Just chain the width you wish your blanket to have (using a multiple of 4 + 2) and start crocheting! I will have a pattern for a blanket I am working on for you in a future post.
Here is a swatch I made using a chunky yarn. The texture is beautiful and thick! Perfect for a cozy blanket. Does it remind you of a breakfast waffle?!
I used a 4 ply/fingering weight yarn in cotton to make this sample. You can see that the Crochet Double Waffle Stitch is perfect for Dish Cloths and Wash Cloths. You can try out a sample piece to practise the stitch and then make good use of it in your home.
How to Crochet the Double Waffle Stitch
I used two colours of a DK weight yarn and a 4.5mm crochet hook for my sample square. You can use any yarn you like and matching hook.
