Waffle Crochet Blanket
You may remember in the Wash Your Washcloths post a dish cloth featured and I said I would show you the stitch.... Here 'tis. It's my all time go to for blankets. I know the granny is an old time favourite and looks really retro at the moment and it is OK for a climate like QLD, but this waffle type construction traps warm air and provides the cosiest rug of really robust construction. Ideal for the Tasmanian conditions. The best thing is there are very few rules and I find it uses up scrap wool effectively. If you want to make a dish cloth, use pure cotton and those lovely scrubby ridges give just the grunt you need on some of the tough jobs. For rugs, use whatever you want to use up. These are great for watching TV or emergency back up in the car. Whether you make a single or a king size, it's up to you and how many chain stitches you do. Even my edge was done with scrap. The crochet terms I use are Australian/English Make a chain..... So go ahead and make a tr in the 4th stitch there.
