WAFFLE STITCH Knit Stitch Pattern

The Waffle Stitch! Hi, Guys! I’m Kristen and Welcome to Studio Knit! Today we are knitting up this yummy Waffle Stitch Pattern! With knits and purls, this stitch resembles
one of our favorite breakfast treats. Oh, wow, yarn really absorbs maple syrup,
doesn’t it? You are sure to love this easily memorable, all around stitch for your fashion and home decor knitting projects. If you’d like, you can knit up your waffle
stitch with a border in the garter stitch. This example has two rows of knit stitch and two knit stitches on the side. Or you can just jump straight into the waffle stitch pattern itself. I have the written pattern for both versions located on my website at studioknitsf, I’ll have a link in the description below. I have so many great knit stitch patterns
that you might want to also pin to your Pinterest board, as well. So, we begin with our beloved slip knot. And we are casting on in multiples of three plus one, so we have three, three, three, three… in as many multiples of three as
you would like and then it’s plus one. So, we just add one more stitch and we are ready for row one. You’ll see the pattern to the left here and
between the asterisks that means we repeat. We’re starting with a knit one and then we
bring the yarn around to the front because we are going to purl two, so that is purling
two stitches. That’s one right there, and that is two! We bring our yarn to the back so that we can knit because we are repeating this pattern between the asterisks until we get to our
very final stitch, so let’s do it one more time. Knit one and we bring our yarn around to the front and now we purl two. Now we continue to do this pattern of Knit one Purl two all the way down the row until the very last stitch. Looking at the pattern, you’ll see that we
end with one knit stitch. On Row Two, we begin with our yarn in the front because we are purling that very first stitch, purl one, and then we bring the yarn to the back and we are going to knit two stitches. That’s knitting one and knitting two. Just like row one, we are going to continue that pattern all the way down until the very final stitch. Here on our final stitch we bring our yarn
to the front because we are finishing up with one purl stitich, which is P1, that means
purl one. Okay, super simple from here on out. Here is how it’s shaping up. Oh, and if you think this is a fun knit stitch, please LIKE UP this video, give it a THUMBS UP. Okay, row three is simply Knit All, so that
means we are knitting the knit stitch all the way down the entire row of row three. Super simple. All the way down the row. And now once we are at our row four, we are doing the purl stitch all the way down the row. These knits and purls are what make up the texture of our Waffle Knit Pattern. All the way down the row. And we just continue these four rows. Rows one through four until your piece is
the length you desire. And we’re looking here at the front of our
work and now this is the back, or what is also called the wrong side. It’s similar, just the opposite of what we
did with our knits and purls. Here is our front side, the right side again. And I hope you are inspired to knit up this
really fun waffle knit pattern. This is the place where you learn how to knit and totally fall in love with it. Please SUBSCRIBE, LIKE UP THIS VIDEO, LEAVE COMMENTS BELOW, and I’ll see you next time. Bye!

  • Love the color of yarn you choose for the video. It looks like a buttermilk waffle. Lol It would look super cute made up in the sugar & cream yarn as a dish cloth. Thanks Kristen πŸ’œ

  • I so appreciate how you type out the pattern to the left of the screen but yet at the same time narrate what you're doing. Keep up the good work and thanks for all the help video that you produce.

  • I have a question for you in regards to this. When it comes to the last 4 rows when you are finishing off a project do you knit on the 2 knit stitches for a border or do you start right off with the stitches after the Asterik?? I'm doing dishcloths in the waffle stitch pattern with the borders. I have been finishing off the dishcloths I have been doing lately with out the border on the last 4 rows and things aren't quite working out. Thanks for your advice.

  • Hi Kristen. I am a new knitter (we don't actually need to knit here in my country haha) and your tutorials really helps! I love how patient you are explaining and doing everything slowly for the beginners.

  • if we are planning on doing the border around it, should we account for the border in the cast on, or does the pattern allow for the border?

  • Hi! I am refreshing my knitting after 40 , yes forty! years off. I've tried books,a friend, and youtube , but it seemed like each source was different from the other. I LOVE your site and am doing a lot of practice. When you say your patterns are "on the link below", I can't find them. Could you or someone in the subscriber list tell me where to find them, please?

  • Hey guys! My new KNIT STITCH PATTERN BOOK now includes this stitch and to easily knit it up offline. Get it on Etsy ($6) here: http://bit.ly/knit-pattern

  • I’m curious what everyone prefers. The metal needles or wooden ones??
    I’m a new knitter and I have only used metal ones but I see you use the wooden ones a lot

  • So you cast on 15 in this tutorial plus one extra stitch on end. You just kind of separated them to show Us the multiple of 3, you didn't make an actual space or anything like that, right? very new to knitting, so please forgive the rudementary question.

  • Hi Kristen! What size needles and what type of yarn did you use in your video please? I'm trying to create this using baby yarn on US size 8 needles, but it's not quite working out…
