Learn how to crochet the Diamond Waffle Crochet Stitch with this complete photo and video tutorial by Nana’s Crafty Home!

Diamond Waffle Crochet Stitch Process 14

This crochet stitch is featured in an upcoming pattern the Marjorie Pocket Scarf which will be a free pattern and part of a crochet a long that begins on 12/07/20 so I wanted to get a tutorial out there so you can practice before you get started!

This stitch is absolutely amazing – and I love how dramatic it is when using 2 different contrasting colors.

If you have never worked this stitch, it may seem really intimidating – but don’t worry I will break down every step so you can feel confident of success.

Start out with a base of single and double crochet stitch rows and then you will begin working front post treble stitches around the single crochet stitches from row 1. You will also be working incomplete front post treble stitches to create the diamond shape. As you move through the pattern, you will work a row of double crochets as a base for the front post trebles and the front post treble stitches will be worked around the trebles made previously.

    This stitch is stunning in two colors! I’m thinking maybe a pocket scarf or a purse. Thank you!
