There’s something I just love about crocheting the Waffle Stitch. This squishy, textured, and gorgeous stitch is unique, fun to crochet, and stylish, too! The Winter Waffle Infinity Scarf and Ear Warmer set is a great quick make for cold weather. Make your own set using this FREE pattern!
Waffle Infinity Scarf
The Waffle Stitch is so much fun to crochet. You really get into a rhythm and before you know it you’re finished! I love a squishy, tall infinity scarf. If this stitch looks familiar, that may be because we’ve used the Waffle Stitch before. 🧇
The Waffle Blanket is one that I absolutely love. This stitch creates such a lovely plush fabric which also makes it perfect for warm scarves and headbands.
Great yarn choices for this set would be virtually any worsted weight yarn. This could include Brava Worsted, Big Twist Value yarn from Joann, Red Heart Super Saver, Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, and Bernat Value.
