Crochet Easy Waffle Baby Blanket

The waffle stitch is a very fun stitch for blankets and almost every other crochet projects. You can also easily make a baby hat, scarf, cardigan, trouser vb. from the same stitch and use them together.

The pattern itself is rather simple. It repeats two rows for the entire pattern. And the border is just one row repeat. Am I right? It’s simple 🙂

  1. Hi Sirin, thanks so much for your terrific video’s, you have been such a help and your soothing voice has been such a friend to me over this Covid time. I havent crocheted for 47 years, and you have helped me conquer my fears of giving it a go. Regards Lisa (Australia)

  2. I’ve attempted this stitch before for a blanket but it wasn’t straight. Is there a reason why or a way to fix the problem?

  3. Nice read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he just bought me lunch as I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch! “We have two ears and only one tongue in order that we may hear more and speak less.” by Laertius Diogenes.
