Waffle stitch

Waffle stitch forms a textured fabric, resembling a waffle dishcloth.

 

It's a repeating pattern over four rows, and is quite straightforward.

Abbreviations: k = knit; p = purl; st = stitch

Instructions (cast on a multiple of 3st plus 1):

Row 1: k to end

Row 2: p to end

Row 3: *k1, p2, repeat from * to last st, k1

Row 4: *p1, k2, repeat from * to last st, p1.

These four rows form pattern.

Psssst.....
