The waffle stitch is a very fun stitch for blankets and scarves. It makes a warm blanket and uses a lot of yarn (it’s a real yarn eater), so keep that in mind when you start your blanket.

The pattern itself is rather simple, once you get the hang of it. It repeats two rows for the entire pattern. That’s it! Simple, right?

Ch in a factor of 3 + 2. This means you will need to chain a number that is a factor of 3, then add 2 onto the end for your turning chain. Chain enough for the width of your blanket.

Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook. Dc across. Turn.

Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as dc), fpdc, [2 dc, fpdc] across until you get to your starting chain. Dc in top of chain. Turn.

Row 3: Ch 2 (counts as dc), dc, [2 fpdc, dc] across until you get to your starting chain. Dc in top of chain. Turn.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until your blanket is your desired length. Tada! You did it!

Border

The border is a simple shell border.

Rnd 1: Sc join (or slip stitch) new yarn anywhere on the blanket. Ch 1, sc to first corner, 3 sc in last st of long edge. Repeat around the blanket. Slip stitch in 1st st to join.

Rnd 2: [Skip 2, 4 dc in next st, skip 2, sc in next st] around. Slip st in 1st st to join. Bind off and weave in ends.

Tip: To prevent your blanket from “rippling” on the edges, go down a hook size when adding the border.

  1. When you said that the foundation chain needs to be a factor of 3 (plus 2), did you mean factor of 3 or multiple of 3?

    1. It really depends on your dimensions. I made a 40″ x 40″ and it took 8 skeins of RHSS, which is about 2800 yards.

      1. Thank you for your video! so easy to follow. your blanket looks so soft and lovely. I’m making throws for my daughter’s bridesmaids in a sage green (still looking for the proper color yarn).
