Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.

All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

Sample of Waffle Stitch

I do not think this one is mine but I have not been able to find it in any of my books but I did come up with this one without using any of the books I have. I just like the way it looks. I used a variation in the round in this month's coaster pattern and it is also used in this month's dishcloth and potholder patterns. I hope you enjoy using this pattern stitch as much I do.

Instructions
When starting with a sc foundation row, ch a multiple of 4 sts + 3.
When starting without a sc foundation row, ch a multiple of 4 sts+6.

Foundation
With sc foundation.
Row 1: Make a sc row. Ch3, turn.

Row 2: Dc in next st, *ch2, sk 2 sts, dc in next 2 sts. Rep from * across. Ch3, turn.

Row 3: Dc in next dc. *1 tr in each of the next 2 skipped sts working behind the 2chs. Dc in next 2 sts. Rep from * across. Ch3, turn. Rows 4 through what ever. Rep rows 2 & 3 consecutively until you have completed as many rows as needed.

If working without a sc foundation. Make your chain as instructed above and then start with Row 2 and work Rows 2&3 consecutively until finished. Working in the round.

This pattern stitch can be worked in the round as well and a good example of how to work this is in the Waffle Stitch Coaster pattern.
