Wiggly July 4th Flag Hot Pad & Coaster

from TheCrochetArchitect.com
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Wiggly July 4th Flag Hot Pad & Coaster
Wiggly July 4th Flag Hot Pad & Coaster Wiggly July 4th Flag Hot Pad & Coaster

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Chain, double crochet and read a pattern

Pattern Description:

Our wiggly crochet July 4th hot pad and coaster is a great addition for celebrating any patriotic holiday, including Memorial Day and Veteran's Day! The hot pad is perfect for the hot dish at your patriotic celebration meal 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 1/4" wide x 5 3/4" high. The coaster measures 4 1/4" wide x 4 1/4" high. This set is made in White, Spanish Red and Dark Royal, but you can use any size 10 cotton crochet thread you desire.

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