Waffle Stitch Blanket Pattern
The waffle is one of my favorite crochet stitches for blankets. The way the waffle stitch pattern works up, it creates a thick, warm fabric – perfect for people that are always cold!
Bulky/5 weight yarn (Premier Puzzle in Dominoes pictured)
-approx. 2500 yards (7.5 skeins)
Crochet hook in size 8mm
Gauge: 10 sts × 6 rows = 4″
Finished size: approximately 55″ × 65″
The chain at beginning of each row does not count as a stitch.
Pattern written using US terms.
For this pattern we are using the Waffle Stitch.
It is the hook size paired with this stitch and bulky yarn that makes this blanket is SUPER squishy. Thankfully with this large hook it works up quickly as well!
