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.

As a long time crocheter I now tend to use various stitches in all the many small projects I do ( cowls, hats, fingerless mitts , earwarmers and scarves ). But I’ve been looking for that one Special Stitch for Afghans. The waffle stitch attracted me , but it was your Double Waffle Stitch that won me over ! I’m leaving now to get Caron Yarn to make an afghan for my nephew . Thank you !! 77 yrs old here and still in love with the fiber art of crochet .

Can you use this pattern for mittens?
Reggie F says
Can this pattern be worked with two different colors? As in having the ribbed portion one color and having the “inner” part of the waffle stitch another color?
You might be able to do that using some tapestry crochet techniques.

Gwynn Sadlier Guiette says
Can anyone provide a pattern that has waffle on both sides?
Kreative Kittiz says
😳The above pattern says it has waffle on both sides🤔☺️
I was wondering what kind of border would be nice with this pattern.
Any kind! Plain dingle crochet, shell stitch. Pretty much anything will look nice.
I would like a tutorial on: Crazy Stitch, Slanted Shell Stitch, Brock Stitch, and the Cabbage Stitch. Is it possibe I can get these?

Will U be doing a video that shows this stitch? I seem to learn best from visual examples. UTube has taught me many patterns I was sure I would never accomplish! Thank U for the Many Beautiful patterns U produce! Those of us who R not creative Thank U! God Bless!
Thank You for sharing this pattern. I made a afghan for my Brother’s Birthday and it turned out beautiful! I posted a picture on Pinterest.
Will the waffle pattern be the same on both the front and back?
Tge back will look the opposite of the front. So the stitches that are raised on the front will be recessed on the back and vise versa.

Never mind. Think I figured it out.
Oh good! When you turn your rows it creates the horizontal line. ?
Janice Milam says
I’m missing something here. Rows 2 and 3 are basically the same. How do you come by the horizontal stripes?
