The Diamond Waffle Stitch is a beautiful crochet stitch! It features a lot of texture and creates a solid, thick fabric.

This stitch is a fun variation of the waffle stitch!

The diamond waffle stitch pattern is made up of a variety of stitches including double crochet and front post triple/treble crochet stitches.

I would consider this pattern to be an intermediate pattern, but don’t let that deter you! After the first few rows there is much less counting and the pattern becomes much easier to work.

Once you get the hang of it, you will be surprised how fast your project grows.

Materials:

For this tutorial I will be using the Caron x Pantone yarn by Yarnspirations along with a 6 mm crochet hook.  The hook shown here and in the video below is a wooden streamline hook by Furls Crochet. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.

Diamond Waffle Stitch:

This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial.  At the end of each row you will need to chain 1 or 3 and turn your work. The chain 3 at the beginning of a row does count as a double crochet stitch.

Don’t forget to check out the free video tutorial linked below!

To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains.  For this stitch pattern you will need multiples of 4 stitches for your foundation chain.

For my swatch I will be making a foundation chain of 24 chain stitches.

Row One:

Into the second chain from your hook, work 1 single crochet. Single crochet in each remaining stitch all the way across.

At the end of the row, chain 3 (Counts as a double crochet) and turn your work.

Sc in the 2nd ch from hook and in each st across.

Row Two:

Double crochet in the next stitch and in each stitch all the way across.

At the end of the row, chain 1 and turn your work.

Dc in the next st and in each st all the way across.

Row Three:

Single crochet in the first stitch. Now looking at row one (single crochet stitch row), work a Front Post Triple around the post of the 4th single crochet from row 1. On row 3, skip the next double crochet and single crochet in each of the next 3 stitches.

* Next, front post triple 2 together with the first leg of the stitch being made around the same single crochet post from row 1, then skip the next 3 single crochet and work the second leg of the stitch around the next single crochet.

Skip the next stitch up top in row 3 and single crochet in each of the next 3 stitches.

Repeat starting at the * all the way across until you have 2 stitches remaining. Front post triple around the post of the last single crochet worked in row 1, skip the next stitch in row 3 and single crochet in the final stitch (top of your chain 3).

Chain 3 and turn your work.

Row Four:

Double crochet in the next stitch and in each stitch across.

Chain 1 and turn your work.

Dc in each st across.

Row Five:

Single crochet in each of the next 3 stitches, * front post triple 2 together working the first leg of the stitch around the same front post triple 2 rows below and the second leg of the stitch around the same stitch as the next front post triple two rows below.

On row 3, skip the next stitch and single crochet in each of the next 3 stitches.

Repeat from * across to the end of the row. Chain 3 and turn your work.

And that’s it!

For the rest of the pattern, simple repeat rows 2 to 5. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
