I want to knit a waffle knit scarf with bulky yarn (Knitpicks decadence) but I can't find a pattern I like or a pattern I understand. For example, I like this pattern: http://www.tata-tatao.to/knit/plainmaf/e-waffle.html  but I'm having trouble understanding the pattern--especially the 3rd row.

Does anyone have a good waffle knit scarf or waffle stitch pattern?

i don't have a good pattern, but i could try to explain that one a bit more clearly, if you'd like. it looks like a pretty easy pattern. let me know if you think that would help you...

"Knit 1 stitch. Keeping the working yarn back, Slip 1 stitch from the left needle to the right needle purlwise. Repeat next to the last stitch. Knit."

So, does that mean that you repeat the slip stitch across, or repeat the whole thing across, then knit?  That line is slightly confusing to me too.

There are some in here that don't exactly look like waffle knit, but are close:

I'm pretty sure it means you repeat the whole thing across. You could always just cast on a few stitches and try it...I would but I'm not at home/don't have needles or yarn with me

I'm intepreting line 4 as follows...

1) Knit one stitch
2) Yarn forward, slip 1 stitch purlwise
3) Yarn to back, knit 1 stitch

Repeat  parts 2 - 3 till 1 stitch remains, knit.

I can't picture how it looks, but I imagine that since it's a waffle weave pattern, there must be something being done to every other stitch to form the pattern. My intepretation of their instructions makes sense according to that then.

artsygal--that makes sense. I made a dishcloth like that once and I can visualize it.

Thanks all for the help!

that's definitely called "brioche stitch", technically.  it is a very difficult stitch to understand from directions and i can't help clarify any more, but you may find more detailed instructions under its common name.

Glad to have helped. Now I hope that's right because I was pretty much making it up as I went! LOL!
