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 🙂
