I saw a vest version of Thermal from Knitty, and I am thinking of making one for myself, but in crochet.

Does anybody know of a crochet stitch that is similar?

Okay, I looked at the pattern and its waffle stitch and twisted rib.

You could use sc between sets of very small fp and bpdc cables - you could use a crossover shell (http://crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa012399.htm)

Im working up a swatch right now to see how close I can get it to looking like that, but Im not sure how itll work out.

I've been watching the Thermal thread a lot too, but I definitely do not have the skills to knit one. I'm interested to see how that swatch works out.

I just found a pattern for the crocheted waffle stitch and it's close, but I'm curious to see how vanillaxlight's swatch looks, too.

Now, that I look at it up close I realize that I used a cluster stitch that also looks like the knitted waffle stitch.  I'll do some swatches, too, so we can compare.

I think the waffle stitch could pull it off. But I'm not sure. I think the problem for me would be creating the flat part not the raised part.

You could do it with crochet cables.
