Sharing is caring!

The Waffle Stitch is a favourite of every crocheter and is a popular choice for making Waffle Stitch Crochet 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 crochet stitch and very addictive to make.

Pattern for Waffle Stitch Crochet

You will find written instructions and a crochet waffle stitch diagram further down this page. The pattern has a slight twist on the regular Waffle Stitch – I am calling it the Crochet Double Waffle Stitch.

The combination of double crochets and front post double crochets, makes this a fun stitch to make! There is no right side or wrong side to your crochet.

Just chain the width you need for your project (using a multiple of 4 + 2) and start crocheting!

Yarn for Double Waffle Stitch Crochet

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. The stitch multiple is 4 sts + 2.

Here is a swatch I made using a chunky yarn. The texture is beautiful and thick! Perfect for a cozy waffle stitch blanket.

Does it remind you of a breakfast waffle?!

What to Crochet with the Waffle Stitch

  1. Thank you so much for publishing this pattern. Somewhere around 30 years ago a family friend helped my Mom start a blanket using the Double Waffle stitch but over time it got set aside and never finished. Recently I was looking for instructions to help her get started again and found your pattern. Now she’s on a roll and the blanket is coming along nicely!
