The Waffle Stitch

This waffle stitch crocheted double thick hot pad pattern is the perfect way to show your personality and add a personal touch to any kitchen.

The Crochet Waffle Stitch is a basic crochet stitch that creates a textured look. It is made by working double crochet stitches into the back loop only. This crochet hot pad pattern uses the waffle stitch to create a textured look that is both unique and stylish.

Lion Brand Re-Up Yarn

This unique yarn is made of 100% recycled cotton, so it’s environmentally friendly and helps reduce waste. Plus, it’s available in a variety of colors, so you can create beautiful projects that are just your style.

I decided to go with the Navy color, because it’s such a classic shade that goes with everything. The yarn is made of recycled cotton, so it’s soft too. I just love it!

This cotton yarn is a thin worsted weight yarn. It is easy to work with.
