Wiggly Jack-O-Lantern Hot Pad & Coaster Wiggly Jack-O-Lantern Hot Pad & Coaster

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Chain, double crochet and read a pattern

Pattern Description:

Our wiggly crochet Jack-O-Lantern hot pad and coaster are sure to be a hit with the little kids (there's nothing scary here). The hot pad is perfect for your Halloween meal hot dish while the coaster keeps surfaces unharmed from water rings. And they make great gifts, too!

This design was previously published in the booklet "Hot Stuff for the Holidays" by Jeanette Crews Designs in 2003. Since that company no longer exists, I decided to bring this pattern back for your stitching and decorating pleasure!

The pattern includes 2 wiggly crochet charts: one for the hot pad and one for the coaster, as well as written instructions and a brief tutorial on doing wiggly crochet.

This pattern is also available as part of the set of 6 Wiggly Hot Pads & Coasters for $11.95.

The hot pad measures 6 5/8" wide x 6 1/4" high. The coaster measures 4" wide x 3 3/4" high. This set is made in Cream, Forest Green, Pumpkin, Goldenrod and Black.

These designs are made in wiggly crochet with a foundation mesh worked first, then the design is worked on top of the foundation mesh. Give wiggly crochet a try. You'll be glad you did!
