Are you looking to add some elegance to your dining room table? A crocheted table runner is the perfect way to do just that. Not only is it functional, but it also adds a beautiful decorative touch to any dining space. Follow this step-by-step guide to create your very own crocheted table runner
To get started, you will need the following materials:
- Size H (5mm) crochet hook
- Worsted weight cotton yarn in your desired color(s)
- Tapestry needle
Step 1: Create the Foundation Chain
Begin by creating a foundation chain in multiples of 4, plus 3 extra chains to turn. The length of the chain will determine the length of your table runner
, so be sure to measure your table beforehand to ensure the correct size.
Step 2: First Row
In the fourth chain from the hook, work a double crochet (dc). Skip the next 3 chains, then work 5 double crochets in the next chain. Skip the next 3 chains, then work a double crochet in the next chain. Repeat from * to * across the row, ending with a double crochet in the last chain.
Step 3: Second Row
Chain 3 (counts as first dc), turn. Work 2 dc in the first stitch. Skip the next 3 stitches, then work 5 dc in the space between the next 2 clusters of dc from the previous row. Skip the next 3 stitches, then work 3 dc in the next dc stitch from the previous row. Repeat from * to * across the row, ending with 3 dc in the last dc stitch.
Step 4: Repeat Second Row
Repeat the second row until the table runner is the desired length. Be sure to end with a row that is the same as the first row.
Step 5: Finishing
Once you have completed the desired number of rows, fasten off the yarn and weave in any loose ends. You may also choose to add a border to your table runner, such as a single crochet or picot edging.
