First, you’ll start by crocheting a foundation square. Then, you’ll make stitches on top of the foundation square to create height. Reference the color graph as needed.
Instructions for the Wiggle Trivet
R1: ch 20, starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 ATC, *ch 1, sk 1 st, 1 dc in the next st, repeat from * until the end of the row, finishing with 1 dc, turn
R2 – 9: 1 ATC, *ch 1, sk 1 st, 1 dc in the next st, repeat from * until the end of the row, finishing with 1 dc, turn
This 3-dc filet crochet square of 9 x 9 can also be made as a 4-dc filet crochet (either one is fine for a trivet):
R1: ch 29, starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 ATC, *ch 2, sk 2 st, 1 dc in the next st, repeat from * until the end of the row, finishing with 1 dc, turn
R2 – 9: 1 ATC, *ch 2, sk 2 st, 1 dc in the next st, repeat from * until the end of the row, finishing with 1 dc, turn
Once your filet crochet square of 9 x 9 pixels is finished, you’ll crochet upward on top of the “foundation” to make it 3D.
Looking at the graph below, each bar (made as chains or dc stitches) needs to have 2-3 dc stitches placed on top. Follow the colored the lines to make a wiggly loop per color and slip stitch the last to the first stitch. See the video for a detailed view.
Personally, I like to start in the center and crochet outward. Fasten off and weave in ends.
