Waffle Charity Block

I love 1×1 waffle stitch. I used it in my Winter Headband and Herald Angels Hat. So I’m surprised I haven’t made a charity block with it yet. It’s incredibly simple, just knit and purl, but the texture is awesome. I honestly think I could make a dozen blocks with this stitch (and this is from someone who never knits the same thing twice).

Here’s how you can try it out:

What you need:

  • Worsted weight acrylic yarn
  • US Size 8 needles (or size needed to obtain gauge)

Gauge: 5 sts/inch in pattern stitch.

How to make it:

Cast on 35 stitches.

Row 1: knit.

Row 2: p1, k1, repeat to last stitch, p1.

Repeat these two rows until block measures 9 inches. Bind off. Sew ends under.

Don’t you love the texture? What is your favorite stitch pattern?
