I've been wanting to use the "thermal" stitch in some knitting projects.  Now, I know it exists out there in internet land, but I have YET to find one that looks good, or even resembles the thermal clothes I have.  I know, I know.  Those are knit on machines with yarn as thin as thread!  But there's got to be something that looks cool in the sport, dk, or worsted weight range, also. 
  Kick down the knowledge, girls! (or guys!!)

dude, I did a search for WAFFLE stitch, and came up with this one: http://www.tata-tatao.to/knit/plainmaf/e-waffle.html which looks pretty darn good. I'll go swatch it and see how it knits up.  Fingers crossed!  Cheesy

Oh I LOVE that pattern! I've soo got that bookmarked in my delicious list already.  It looks similar, but is described as a twisted rib in the copy... I'll try to swatch all the MANY different instructions I've found (all over the web) for the thermal/waffle stitch.  That way anyone who's looking for this type of stitch also can see effects of all the different variations.  Sounds like a good BLOG project!  Guess I need a blog now...  Grin

Here's another, extremely easy. It's called Shaker Rib, a variation of Fisherman's Rib.

CO even number of stitches, knit across the first row.

Next row and all following - k1, k1B, repeat across to last 2 sts, k2

That's it.

And another waffle stitch -

Waffle Stitch
Round 1: *K1, K into the stitch below* repeat around
Round 2: Knit
Round 3: *K into the stitch below, K1* repeat around
Round 4: Knit

Have fun trying these out...
