Waffle Stitch

I’m working on a new blanket for my couch. It’s in the beautiful waffle stitch. It’s a fairly easy stitch to follow. 


To create this beautiful waffle pattern, you will need to begin by crocheting a chain in a multiple of 3 plus 1. I used an I hook. 

Row 1: dc in 4th chain from hook. Dc in next chain, *dc around next chain, dc in next 2 chains. Repeat from *

Row 2: ch 3, *dc in next 2 dc, fpdc the dc that went around the chain. Repeat from * ending with dc in top of skipped ch in chain 

Odd rows: ch 3, *dc in first dc, fpdc next 2 dc. Repeat from * ending with dc in top of ch 3 

Even rows: ch 3, *dc in first 2 dc, fpdc next dc. Repeat from * ending with dc in top of ch 3

Repeat until blanket is desired size.
