The Waffle Crochet Stitch

This waffle stitch crocheted baby blanket pattern is the perfect way to add some soft texture to a blanket. This stitch with chenille yarn creates a squishy square.

The crochet waffle stitch is a basic crochet stitch that creates a textured raised square. It is made by working double crochet stitches into the back loop only.

The Yarn

I love the soft fuzziness of this Bernat Blanket Yarn. The yarn is easy to find and inexpensive.

There are lots of color choices too: blues, greens, grays, lavender, and more. There are also solid colors, as well as, other multi-colored yarn choices.

The self striping ombre chunky chenille yarn is great because you get lots colors without having to change colors. There are less ends to weave in.

I found this super bulky yarn is a little hard to work with because it is fuzzy. You have to feel with your hook or your finger for the next stitch space.
