After seeing potholders made in this technique at a vintage show I was anxious to try it. I had never seen this style of crocheting before but it turned out not to be difficult at all. It’s a bit slower than the usual crochet project because you have to make the mesh grid before you can begin the squiggles.
It is surface crochet but I haven’t found a true name for this technique other than wiggle, squiggle, or wave although it is a cousin of Dragon Curves. Dragon Curves is actually something that is part of the world of mathematics (google the term for an explanation and interesting images).
This pattern is for rug yarn and a big hook but I adapted it for #10 crochet cotton and a steel hook. The 3rd & 4th pictures show the wrong side. I used Violet for the mesh base which you can see in the bottom picture.
I have 3 tips:
