waffle look it is a combination front post double
crochet and standard double crochet worked in
the top the previous stage the multiple for this stitch will be 3 what that means is it takes three
stitches to make pattern at the stitch this is the foundation down here and I
added an extra stitch to each side so this is the first post and then
there’s two in between so that’s three this is the next
combination of stitches which is three post and the two
individual which is another three so this is the
multiple and then a lotta times there will be an extra amount of
stitches which is the possum out so the multiple which is three then
there will be some additional stitches I don’t like to worry over trying to get
it exact because a lot of times you may end up with an extra chain or two that the and and that’s
never a reason to worry about I just go ahead and work and if I end up
with an extra chain on the and I just so within I will

I have plenty of yarn to work with and I didn't wish to purchase a kit just to get the pattern. Your videos are always excellent: sharp, clear pictures, and you take the time to show precisely what is needed…I've seen other videos (not yours) and they move too fast…AAAAAA++++++++ all the way! Happy Thanksgiving

  • I love your videos – very easy to follow but this one had me cracking up. I was following along while my friend and I were at home watching a movie (I can't do just one thing at a time:) I'd turned my sound off and was following by your subtitles I guess your voice recognition software was a little off this day.
