Wiggle Crochet - Heart Pillow

I've recently discovered wiggle crochet.  It is this fantastic method where you crochet a grid and then crochet multiple stitches in each grid bar.  The effect is that you get this great wavy pattern.  The patterns are endless.

I got it in my head that I was going to design a heart pillow.  I created a 17x17 grid and used a spreadsheet document to plan out my pillow.  I'm so pleased with the results! I finished it the other day and it was destined to be my coworker's wedding gift.

I just love the colors.  I used a lovely red in Red Heart Soft yarn and charcoal grey in Vanna's Choice.

Aren't the wiggles/waves gorgeous?

The back is wonderful too.  I used a granny square pattern I discovered on Ravelry that alternates FPDC and DC to create this great cabled look.
I'm so proud of my pillow!

  1. Holy cow! You should be SUPER proud! That is AMAZING! Are you sharing the pattern anywhere or do you have a link I could follow to learn how to do wiggle crochet? That is seriously the coolest thing I have seen in a long time!

  2. Oh, thank you! I free handed most of it. I tried to keep track initially, but I found myself watching too much television. :) I may try to make another one and come up with the pattern.

  3. Haha, I do that so often!! If you find yourself in the mood I would love a pattern but don't stress about it. I'll probably just start playing around with "wiggle crochet" and see what I come up with. It's very very cute! You did a great job!

  5. How big was your grid (no. of squares) for the cushion? Did you use double crochet or treble for the grid?

    1. Hi, Neetika, I used a 17x17 grid. It was created with double crochets.
