The Waffle stitch is quite easy, at least once you figured out the edging. All you have to do is to pay attention to the beginning of row 2 and 3 and you will be fine. The Waffle stitch uses a FRONT POST Double Crochet stitch (FPDC). It is called a Front post as it pushes the stitch to the front as you can see.
The first thing you have to do is to make a chain that is divided by 3. In my case 15. Then you have to add 4 extra chain for edging. I made 19 chains all up.
Row 1. Ch 19, turn, 1 dc in 3rd chain from hook, 1 dc in each dc to end. All up 18 dc. Turn.
Row 2. Ch 2, 1 FPDC in next dc, 1 dc in next dc, *1 FPDC in next 2 dc, 1 dc in next dc*, rep between ** to end, end with 1 dc in turning chain (or ch 2 in later rows). Turn.
Row 3. Ch 2, 1 dc in next 2 dc, *1 FPDC in next dc, 1 dc in next 2 dc*, rep between ** to end. Turn.
Repeat row 2 and 3 until you have the desired length.
