Waffle Stitch Charity Scarf

The Waffle Stitch Charity Scarf pattern makes a warm and wonderfully textured scarf pattern to keep the chill away. This waffle stitch crochet pattern is especially good for charity because there is no need for special sizing and anyone can use a scarf!

This easy crochet scarf is worked up using the waffle stitch, a quick and simple stitch pattern that uses double crochet and front-post double crochet stitches to create a textured appearance like you'd see on breakfast waffles. For a fun variation, try seaming then ends together to make a pretty infinity scarf too.

This waffle stitch scarf looks so warm! I am not digging the color, perhaps something brighter would be better for me, but the pattern definitely looks very awesome. I am trying to decide what type of scarves I want to make for the winter, and I think I have decided to make one of these to try!

Im not sure that Waffle Stitch items are actually warmer than other stitches, but they do give that illusion thanks to their double textured, thermal look. I usually complain that projects that are just posted to AllFreeCrochet dont have enough photos, but this pattern is so easy and repetitive that it really doesnt need them. The pattern is worked across the rows, so if you dont want to make an entire scarf, you can stop at a square and call it a potholder.

OMG, this pattern is awesome since it actually does look like a waffle. Here is another pattern I will have to save to make later this year for charity and maybe even one for myself. Thanks for this pattern.

This is a very easy stitch to work and to learn. I have used it a couple of times on some spa cloths that I made for a welcome basket. It could also be used when making tiny warming blankets for new babies at the hospital. It works up fairly quickly because there isnt a lot of different stitching patterns to work.

I love the look of this Waffle Stitch Charity Scarf! This pattern is very well written and easy to follow. This will be my go to scarf this winter. The pattern sounds like it will make a nice warm scarf. I think it would go quickly and can be made in one night of watching t.v. . I'm looking forward to trying this one. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.
