So comfortable to wear this waffle sweater! A sweatshirt feel but with a sleek and modern look.
This waffle stitch pattern is created with just a simple combination of Knit and Purl stitches.
Top down construction is easy to follow once you start seeing the waffle stitch pattern.
The sleeves are just straight, so no double pointed needles required :) The result is a very comfortable and modern sleeve shape.

I love wearing my own designs, but this one in particular is definitely one of my favorites! Hope you all enjoy it as well.

Any DK weight of yarn.
Hedgehog fibers yarn (the golden yellow sample) was a dream to work with. Tightly twisted yarn shows the waffle stitch pattern very nicely.

It is very important to check the gauge after wet-blocking. The waffle stitch will stretch out a lot lengthwise after wet-blocking.
