Sharing is caring!

The Waffle-icious Waffle Stitch Cardigan crochet pattern is a unique construction that is worked in one-piece flat. The waffle stitch crochet pattern is a simple stitch technique that gives this crochet cardigan loads of texture and squishiness. The cardigan is worked in fingering weight yarn so that it’s light without too much bulk. Therefore, It’s the perfect cozy cardigan for any season. YouTube video included!

Back Story

Several years ago, I purchased a pink sweater from Garage that I loved, but the fit wasn’t the greatest (the colour was fantastic).  I wore it while filming several tutorials and was repeatedly asked for the pattern, and I was planning for a long time to make something similar.


Even with all my excitement to make this cardigan, I started it last summer, and it repeatedly was put on the back burner. 


I’m happy that it’s finally finished and my new favourite crochet cardigan! I know fingering weight might be intimidating, but give it a try! The waffle stitch is worked in double and front post double crochet stitches, so it works up quickly, and when you have a big project like this, that’s what you want. The stitch is squishy and cozy, but it’s lightweight.

The Waffle Stitch Cardigan crochet pattern calls for a US F (3.75mm) or size needed to obtain gauge

The Furls Odyssey crochet hook has a large handle so that it makes working with fingering weight yarn a breeze. You can purchase them HERE with code MJS15

When I started this cardigan, I knew a long cardigan in fingering weight would take forever, but it was so worth it! And I’ve included in the pattern how to easily customize it for any length and fit.

I love how this cardigan seamlessly flows together with no arm seams. One thing I’m not a fan of is seaming, and I really hate an arm seam. If you’ve made any of my crochet garment patterns, you’ll know that I like to make them in one or two pieces so that they’re easy to construct.

If you can crochet a blanket, you can crochet this cardigan. It’s worked in only one piece flat so that the only seaming required is the sides and sleeves.
