For as long as I can remember my Grandma has had a cream colored afghan on her couch (or davenport as they used to call it). It is the coziest most textured blanket ever… it uses this stitch.  I’m not sure if there is an official name for it but I am calling it the Double Waffle Stitch.

In today’s tutorial I used Caron One Pound and my trusty 6mm/J Hook but please feel free to use whatever you want. This stitch has some MAJOR texture, my little sample was at least ¾ in thick! Usually when you work with post stitches you are either working the post stitches only on the right side of your piece or you are using a combo of front and back post stitches. This uses a front post double crochet on both the right and wrong side, which makes it SUPER thick.

I already know that this would make a great afghan. You could really take this to the next level by using some super bulky yarn to make a throw! I also think it would also do a fantastic job as a dish scrubber or washcloth or a even a squishy scarf.
