The V Stitch Waffle – Pattern Description
The V Stitch Waffle is a one-row repeat pattern crocheted with V stitches and front post double crochet stitches to create a thick, double-sided pattern that looks like a waffle.
This is a simple pattern that creates a beautiful textured fabric suitable for any projects that need to be warm and look good from both sides such as afghans, blankets, hats, scarves and winter cardigans.
The V Stitch Waffle pattern is easy to crochet, you don’t need to count stitches or keep track of rows, all it takes is a one-row repeat.

Front Post Double Crochet (fpdc)
Step 1: Yarn over (2 loops on hook), insert hook from front to back behind the double crochet post below, yarn over, and pull up a long loop (3 loops on hook).
Step 2: Yarn over and pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yarn over, and pull through the last remaining loops.
- ch3 at the beginning of each row counts as a double crochet stitch
- stitches contained within ** are the repeat section for that row
- stitches contained within () are crocheted in the same chain space
- TIP: you only work your stitches in the V stitch from the previous row
Starting Chain: This pattern requires you to chain multiples of 5ch. My starting chain is 30ch.
Row 1: 2dc in the 6th ch from hook, ch1, 2dc in the next ch, sk3, *2dc in the next ch, ch1, 2dc in the next ch*, repeat until you have 3ch left, sk2, dc in the last ch, turn.
Row 2: ch3, sk1, fpdc around the dc below, (dc, ch2, dc) in the ch1 space below, fpdc around the dc below, *sk2, fpdc around the dc below, (dc, ch2, dc) in the ch1 space below, fpdc around the dc below*, repeat in every ch1 space you have in the row below and until you have 2sts left, sk1, dc in the last st, turn.
Repeat row 2 until you have the required length
