After doing the Wagon Wheel Potholder and the Waffle Stitch Watch Caps, I decided to play with the concept a little more and make a baby blanket. I used looser gauge than I normally would with worsted weight yarn to accommodate the added bulk of the post stitches. This blanket is nice and squishy, but it also has enough heft to be a good blanket for floor time.
The sample was made with a variegated yarn, but it would also be fun to make it with stripes, because the colors would overlap a little everywhere you have back post double crochets.
As with the other patterns that involved increasing in pattern in waffle stitch, if you have any confusion with written instructions, check out my video tutorial.
