The crochet waffle stitch is perfect for when texture, thickness and durability is a must. It’s not reversible, making it best suited for projects where both sides don’t show.
The crochet waffle stitch works up nicely with a variety of yarn weights, although the inherent thickness of the fabric it creates makes light or medium weight yarns most practical. Pair it with a smooth or slightly textured yarn to see the pattern best, and choose a solid color, or a yarn with long sweeping color changes. It doesn’t look the best with “mosaic” yarns that have short color changes.
