How to Crochet the Waffle Stitch - Video Tutorial

The crochet waffle stitch is a simple stitch with amazing texture!  This stitch creates a heavy and sturdy fabric that is perfect for home decor pieces and the coziest blankets you could imagine.  If you have always been wanting to try this stitch, but didn't know where to start - look no further!  I have a right AND left handed video tutorial to teach you the waffle stitch, and a perfect pattern to use it for :)

Gingham print is always hot in the spring and summer months!  It can be used in both timeless and trendy projects, and the color options are truly endless.  Achieving a gingham print in crochet projects is much easier than you would think, and today I have a right and left handed video tutorial to show you how to do it.

If the waffle stitch looks intimidating, you are mistaken!  You only need to know how to crochet double crochet (DC) and front post double crochet (FPDC) stitches to make a piece with this awesome texture.  The waffle stitch fits right in with modern decor right now and it looks great in both solids and self striping yarns.  I have seen many beautiful Caron Cakes blankets crocheted with the waffle stitch as well! Here is a sneak peek of my next free pattern coming to the blog guessed it!  The Waffle Stitch.
