Waffle Stitch Blanket to Crochet

My family just learned the difference between regular waffles and “Belgian” waffles. This project reminds me of the pictures we saw (and drooled over!) of the deep-welled waffles of the Belgian version.

So naturally, I love the deep “waffle” wells on this blanket!

  • I-9 crochet hook
  • 4 skeins of Caron Cake in Rainbow Sprinkles or any worsted weight yarn (the pictured blanket used 1,532 yards)

Lacy Driftwood Sailboats

Looks like these were made by drilling a hole into a small piece of driftwood (I’ve seen some at my local Hobby Lobby) and inserting a smaller piece, about the size of a dowel and painted to match. Then a quarter of a lace edged handkerchief, sewn into a triangle, was attached for the sail. So pretty!
