I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

The waffle square… the good, old, simple waffle square… Who’d have thought it’s so versatile and universal?

And yet, here are some very diverse waffle square crochet patterns to demonstrate the true potential of this seemingly humble stitch and building block. Take it for a whirl, and see that there are a myriad possibilities.

The waffle square is ideal for making pot holders, because the thickness of the stitching traps air and keeps your fingers safe. In addition, it’s a beautiful texture that’s sure to be a great decoration for your kitchen. It could also double as a trivet or just a protector for a surface on which you need to put something hard.
