The Waffle Stitch Poncho Crochet Pattern is one big rectangle made with this gorgeously textured stitch!
The Waffle Stitch is one of my favorites! I absolutely love the pattern it creates. For this poncho I used Stylecraft Special Aran in the color Parchment. You can use any worsted weight yarn for this pattern.
