I'm knitting my last little baby sweater for the new book. At least I'm going to shortly cast on and then I will be knitting it. I've saved one of my favourite stitch patterns until the end, the waffle stitch. It's easy, it's effective, I think it looks great.

Waffle Stitch:
Row 1:  *K2, P2; repeat.
Row 2:  *P2, K2; repeat.
Rows 3 & 4:  Knit.
This cardigan is from the Teens and Tweens book and then we did an adult version too.

I've also used it in the Need A Sock? book.

Waffle Stitch:  'in the round'
Rounds 1 & 2:  *K2, P2; repeat.
Round 3:  Knit.
Round 4:  Purl.

And now this same stitch pattern is going to adorn a baby sweater. I can't get enough of it.

Do you have stitch patterns that you love to do? Which ones are they?


  1. I don't know the name but I use it a lot. I thought of it in my head, however, it is likely in a book somewhere.
    Rows 1-3: Knit
    Rows 4-6: [K1,P1] to last st. K1
    I must be worked on an odd number of sts. to accommodate the seed stitch rows.
    I call it my Garter/Seed St. Pattern

  2. Now all we need is an ample version for 52-60 !
    Seriously! I always wanted one of those, but, alas, it is not in the larger sizes.
    It is a gorgeous sweater.

  3. Hee Hee. LOL. Baby to adult, sweaters to socks. Cabin Fever knitters can 'waffle' through all life's stages and body parts.
