I took the idea from the Wiggle It Trivet and upgraded it for Valentine’s Day – or any day you want to show your love. This super 3D crochet pattern is perfect as a table protector under hot dishes during romantic (or not so romantic) meals – but it’s important that it be made with cotton so it doesn’t melt! You could also use sew two together for a gorgeous pillow, or make it with bulky yarn and use it as a cushy stool cover – the possibilities are up to your imagination!

NOTE: The “wiggles” are worked in a continuous spiral, starting in the middle and working around and around to the last Round of mesh (round 6).

If you are unfamiliar with wiggle crochet, please view the video tutorial linked above.

Round 1: Join with dc around bottom of post of 1st dc of Mesh Round 1, dc 2 along post, working to the top of the post, dc in next ch-1 sp, 3 dc along post of next dc (working top to bottom), *3 dc around post of next st (working bottom to top), dc in ch -1 sp, 3 dc around post of next st (working top to bottom); repeat from * around to last 2 sts, 3 dc around post of next st (working bottom to top), dc around ch-1 sp, dc around sc (the 1st st of Mesh Round 1), dc in ch-1 sp; do not join.

Thanks so much for putting the pattern on your page an not have to download it, my tablet is not working when I try to download, so I’m glad it’s just on your page, wish everyone would do that. Thanks for all your other great patterns too!

    I love this. My sister-i-l taught me how to do the trivets last January, but I didn’t know the name of the work. Now we can do hearts! How lovely in pink for my cancer survivor Sis and our TwinFriend!!!!!

    Hi Tamara,
    Love the Wiggles Trivet and I want to make it.
    Question, how many stitches for the magic ring? eight? Sorry, I crochet a lot, but need lots of direction LOL.

      Hi FrancesCA! Thank you! There are 8 sts worked into the magic circle in this pattern, but in general it depends on the pattern. No stitches actually make up the magic circle itself – there’s a linked tutorial for it if you’re not familiar with it! :)

    Hi, I am struggling with round 3 of the mesh. I have tried it the way it is written & I come out with more stitches then called for. Frogged, tried it a different way & still not the right amount of stitches. I am an advanced crocheter and you got me on this round. :) Thanks for your clarification. :)

        Sure does. I misunderstood and thought it was 2 stitches in 1 stitch. and then 1 stitch. I will give this a try. I want to use this as a Valentine goodie for an auction on Sunday. Thank you
