Inspired by the epitome of lazy days, I couldn’t help but want to share this quirky and beautifully detailed stitch with you all… Due to it’s repetitive and simple steps, this is the ideal stitch to use while relaxing by a glowing fireplace on a quiet Saturday morning!
The Waffle Stitch creates a dense yet extremely cosy fabric, making this the perfect stitch to use when crocheting cushions covers, snuggly scarves or sturdy washcloths as this combination of stitches creates the most adorable waffle-like texture (thus the name)!
Learning a new crochet stitch or technique is always such fun, don’t you agree? If you’re keen to challenge yourself this weekend (as you’re cozied up by the fireplace), you’re in luck as this helpful step-by-step video tutorial will guide you through all the necessary steps needed to learn the “Waffle Stitch“, in an easy to follow speed!
