Patterns in Learn to Do Wiggly Crochet
Wiggly Crochet is a 3-dimensional crochet that was popular for making hot pads in the 1950s. Wiggly Crochet begins with a base mesh made up of chain stitches in the horizontal direction and double crochet stitches in the vertical direction. The 3-D aspect is added by working 3-5 double crochets over each bar of the mesh base. These double crochets are packed so closely together that they have no choice but to wiggle away from the mesh! 32 pages.
