In chapter 7 we will be working on a much more relaxed panel. Using the same waffle stitch to work 2 opposing panels. Follow the video below to start your waffle section.


The next section is covering the granny square cluster section. Which gives you 4 more rows of clusters, so that we can move onto the mini granny square projects.

  • In this section of our midnight pumpkin patch blanket, we will be work each panel on the turn. In other words, we will work a row and then turn the blanket, working from the right side facing to the wrong side. This is super important to remember, because creating textures will be based on how our stitch lies.

  • To start with we will need to work 175 stitches, from one corner to another.

  • We will be working double crochets.

  • *6dc into the next 6 stitches

  • skip the stalk and work the next 6 stitches to the next stalk

  • start with the wrong side facing

  • We're now going to work the second part of the repeat for the waffle pattern

  • Each row follows a 3 stitch pattern repeat (bp-tr, 2 htr)

  • So from front post stitches when we worked the right side facing, we will now be working the reverse from the opposite side.

  • so... from the wrong side facing you may be able to identify which stitch was the front post treble and the back post treble.

  • I've added two pictures to help you identify the stitches from the front and the back.

  • The first picture shows you the right side facing. The first blue arrow is the fp-tr, the lighter blue is the bp-tr (which is the method that gives you the raised ridge of the box that you can see)

  • The second picture is the wrong side. You can clearly see the two raised stitches, these are the back of the bp-tr you created.

  • The red arrow shows the recess of the fp-tr we created.

  • Once you know this you can without following the pattern, instinctively know where each stitch belongs.

  • The bp-tr (lives where the recessed fp-tr is, you place your stitch around this post.

  • the 2htr, work into the stitch head of the raised bp-tr. This gives you the flat base for the centre of your waffle square.

Thank you for your patience as we work our way through a pretty big job list. We're working around our annual leave to complete all we can to complete this year and start our plans for 2024.
