Waffles, cakes and rainbow sprinkles

Crochet scarf

The waffle stitch is created by crocheting into the front post of a double crochet.  It creates an interesting texture of vertical and horizontal ridges that form squares.

I attempted the waffle stitch on a scarf.  Because the waffle pattern does not emerge until after the fourth row or so, I didn’t realize my stitch count was way off until I was crocheting for an hour! It was “rip out or move forward”.  I decided to move forward because the texture was still interesting and colors really popped. For a mere $5 (on sale), I crocheted a scarf with Caron Cake Rainbow Sprinkles color way.

The waffle stitch is relatively simple – if you are not distracted by a 3 year old. It involves only the chain stitch and double crochet. To learn this stitch, check out The Crochet Crowd’s video tutorial.
