As soon as I saw the Double Waffle Stitch I was IN LOVE. The texture in this stitch is so amazing. The stitch tutorial is from The Unraveled Mitten. In this blog post I’ll show how I used her tutorial to make this hat. I think this stitch looks awesome as a beanie! It has just a bit of slouch, but can easily be made shorter.
Worsted weight yarn (I used Caron Simply Soft in Ocean)
5.0 mm hook
Pattern Noted & Stitches to Know
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
fpdc – front post double crochet
Ch at beginning of each round do not count as stitch
The beanie is worked from the bottom up, in back and forth rows, and then sewn together.
Ch 66 (can be any multiple of 5 + 1)
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from the hook and across (65 sc)
Row 2: ch 2, turn, dc in same stitch and in each stitch across (65 dc)
For remaining rows follow pattern for DOUBLE WAFFLE STITCH Start with row 2 – repeat rows 2 & 3 to row 26 (or until the rectangle is 10 inches long – or until desired length)
Leave a long tail for sewing, fasten off.
Fold rectangle in half
Using yarn needle and long end, whipstitch both sides together. Do not fasten off
Weave the long end in and out of the tops of the last row. Pull yarn to cinch the top closed. Sew the top securely closed. Fasten off, weave in the ends.
