The Art of Wiggly Crochet


Wiggly Crochet, What the heck is it?

It is a technique used to add a 3-dementional wiggle or lace to any project. It is usually performed by making a basic filet crochet mesh as a separate piece and put a series of Double crochet on each side of the boxes that are made in the mesh.


This mesh was made by Chaining 62, dc 8th ch from hook (counts as first open mesh), [ch2, sk next 2 chs, dc in next ch] 18 times, turn. (19 open mesh)


I have done two wiggly crochet hotpads designed by Susan Lowman.
The first one i am going to show you can be found by clicking here, it is the Watermelon Hot-pad.
The seccond one I am going to show you can be found by clicking here, It is the Fall Leaf Hot-pad
Here is a youtube video that demonstrates how to perform the stitch.


I hope I answered any questions you may have about Wiggly crochet aka, the wave stitch.
