This knit stitch is great for beginners who want to move beyond garter stitch and stockinette.

The waffle stitch is very cleverly named after the gorgeous purl peaks that are created when you knit this stitch. Not only is this a super easy stitch to master, but it is versatile, too, so you can incorporate it into just about any project you can think of! So get ready to knit some amazing patterns.

We recommend this stitch for beginners who want to move beyond the knits and purls of stockinette and garter stitch. This stitch is a great way for knitters to learn the mechanics of knit stitches and to experience, row by row, how the stitches interact with each other.
