Waffle Crochet stitch ~ Stitch tutorial
The waffle stitch is a stitch using linked single crochet (US) or double crochet (UK) stitches. The stitches are extended creating a vertical thread between the stitches as seen in the picture above.
The foundation chain must have Odd number + 2. In my example, I began my foundation chain with 13 chs.
You will use a special stitch called 2-linked EXSC: insert hook as instructed, yo, pull though a loop, insert hook in next st, yo, pull through a loop, (yo, pull through 2 loops) twice.
Row 1. Insert hook in 3rd and 4th ch from hook with 2-linked EXSC, *ch 1, 2-linked EXSC in next 2 chs, *repeat between ** to end, end with ch 1, 1 sc in last ch. Turn.
Row 2. Ch 2, 2-linked EXSC in first sc and next ch sp, *ch 1, 2-linked EXSC by inserting hook to the right of next vertical thread, and then in next ch sp*, repeat between ** to end, end with ch 1, 1 sc in last exsc.
Repeat row 2.
