Wiggly Playing Cards Set

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • work ch, dc and sl st

Pattern Description:

These designs are made in the wiggly crochet technique, which is started by making a filet mesh for the base of each piece. Then double crochet stitches are worked around the post of the dc stitches and in the ch-2 sps between the double crochet to add the dimensional "wiggly" stitches, forming the design. This technique is fun to make! The thickness of the dc "wiggles" and the cotton thread (which absorbs moisture) makes these ideal to use as coasters. And the playing card theme makes them fun to use while playing cards with friends!

This pattern includes photos showing the filet mesh and the wiggly stitches. It also includes 5 wiggly crochet charts, one for each of the pieces.
