Materials You Will Need
Before you get started on your waffle-icious cardigan, here are the materials you will need:

- Crochet hook size I/5.5mm

The waffle stitch is used to create a textured and cozy fabric that is perfect for a cardigan. Here are the step-by-step instructions for making your waffle-icious cardigan:
- Begin with a chain that is a multiple of 3 plus 2 stitches.
- Row 1: Double crochet in the third chain from the hook, and in each chain across. Chain 2, turn.
- Row 2: Front post double crochet (FPDC) around the next stitch, double crochet in the next stitch. *FPDC around the next stitch, double crochet in the next stitch*. Repeat from * to * across the row. Chain 2, turn.
- Row 3: Back post double crochet (BPDC) around the next stitch, double crochet in the next stitch. *BPDC around the next stitch, double crochet in the next stitch*. Repeat from * to * across the row. Chain 2, turn.
- Row 4: Repeat row 2.
- Row 5: Repeat row 3.
- Repeat rows 2-5 until your work measures your desired length.
- Sleeves: To make the sleeves, fold your cardigan in half and find the center stitch on the bottom edge. Attach your yarn to the center stitch and work in the round, making double crochet stitches around the armhole. Continue until the sleeve reaches your desired length.
- Finishing: Sew on buttons (optional), weave in all loose ends, and block your cardigan to your desired measurements.
