Waffle Stitch Variation

I call this Waffle Stitch Variation
This special stitch is a variation of another the Waffle stitch.

Of course you can make this as long as you want. This would make a lovely scarf using this many stitches with yarn. Or you could start with a longer starting ch and make placemats. Or you can go to the two patterns in this month's newsletter and make a coaster and a dishcloth. What ever you do, have fun.
