Reversible Waffle Crochet Stitch

The reversible double sided crochet stitch is created by working Front Post Double Crochet Stitches (FPDC) on both sides of the crochet piece, with a V-Stitch (1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) in between, creating raised V-Stitches in a Waffle pattern.

For this pattern I have created a photo tutorial with step by step pictures to help you.

The stitch multiple is 5 stitches.
