My name is Susan Lowman. I've been crocheting for over 40 years and designing for over 15 years. I have over 200 published crochet designs in various crochet books and magazines. In addition, I blog about crochet and self-publish crochet patterns on my website, TheCrochetArchitect.com. I am also a technical crochet editor and teacher, as well as an active professional member of CGOA.
I learned to knit in the summer of 2013 and I couldn't be more thrilled! I'm having a blast learning more knitting techniques. You'll see some of my knitting designs here on Craftsy, too.
I thank God for the gift of creativity He has given me and I thoroughly enjoy sharing it with others.
"Top o' the mornin' to you"! You'll have the "luck of the Irish" with this wiggly crochet Shamrock hot pad & coaster set! The hot pad is perfect for your hot corned beef and cabbage 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 5 1/2" wide x 6" high and the coaster measures 3 3/4" wide x 4" high. This set is made in White, Hunters Green and Mint Green, but you can use any size 10 cotton crochet thread you desire.
These designs are worked in wiggly crochet with a foundation mesh worked first, then the design area is worked on top of the foundation mesh. Give wiggly crochet a try. You'll be glad you did!
