About This Scarf

Waffle Stitch Scarf This stitch, we call it 'waffle stitch' for ourselves, is an application of slip stitch. It is elastic stitch. The fabric of the stitch looks elaborate, but it is easy to knit. The half of the fabric is made of the simplest stocking stitch.

This stitch is thick and dense. So, if you used ordinary thick wool yarn, the fabric might be too hard to use for scarves. On the contrary, if you used thin soft yarn, it could give a enough volume to the fabric.
