The Perfect Crochet table runner pattern is here!

Before diving into what you need to create the crochet table runner pattern, I need to explain why it was important to include this in the collection.

I had my coasters, placemats and napkin rings. They looked so pretty on the table.

When they weren’t being used the table looked bare and boring. And kind of neglected.

It needed something for everyday when the mats were not being used. It had to be practical and fit in with our lifestyle with two large dogs, kids and of course the biggest kid of all, sometimes referred to as ‘husband’. I like me house to look and feel cosy and inviting. We spend a lot of time in our large open plan kitchen / dining room.

For me the table runner fit the bill and is easy to move when my daughter and her friends decide to empty the arts and craft cupboard…

And it looks beautiful with a vase of flowers in the middle!

free crochet coaster pattern

Hi Guys, Helen here!

I’m thrilled to be part of the Sunflower Cottage Crochet family and wanted to share the first free crochet coaster pattern in my Jorja Collection with you.

It’s a collection close to my heart as it is named after my awesome daughter who is also my biggest crochet fan.

I wanted to create a collection that was simple (both to make and in design) but stylish, a collection that could be easily worked up to suit any taste and décor around the home just by the choice of colours.

We will be using the paired single crochet and chains to create a look that I don’t think could ever look outdated.

If I had to describe this style, I’d probably call it a vintage country chic look. I hope you like it as much as we do!

So, let’s get started!

What you will need:

Gauge is not important here but mine measured 5.5’’ x 5.5’’ when finished

Note: Ch1 at the beginning does not count as a sc.

Abbreviations:

Ch—Chain

FSC – Foundation single crochet

PSC – paired single crochet

St(s)—Stitch(es)

Sk – skip

SS – slip stitch

Sp(s)—Space(s)

Rep—Repeat

*to*–Repeat the instructions written between the two *

FO – fasten off

Special Stitches:

FSC –

PSC – sc in first stitch of row only, *insert hook into same sp and yo pull through, insert hook into next space and yo pull through, yo pull through all three loops on hook.*

Pattern:

In colour A:

Row 1: FSC 11, ch1, turn

Row 2: PSC 11, ch1, turn

Rows 3-11: repeat row 2 but do not turn work at the end of row 11

Border:

Rnd 1: In the last stitch of row 11 (sc, ch2, sc) this will create your first corner. *PSC in next 9 sts, (sc, ch2, sc) in the next st* repeat 3 times, ss to first sc.

Join colour B to any ch2 space

Rnd 2: ch4, sk1, ss in next st, *ch3, sk1, ss to next st* around.

Note: you should have 6 Ch3 spaces along each side.

 

Rnd 3: SS to next ch3 sp, *ch3, ss to next ch3 sp* around.

Note: you will find that you create a ch3 for each corner again and there should be 5 ch3 spaces between each corner space. If you cannot see them gently stretch your coaster a little and they should be visible. You may want to use stitch markers to mark each corner.

Attach colour A to any corner.

Rnd 4: *(Sc2, ch2, sc2) in corner, (sc2 in next ch2 sp) 5 times * repeat 3 more times, ss to first sc.

Rnd 5: ch1, sc in each st around and in each ch2 ensure you (sc2, ch2, sc2). SS to first sc.

Farmhouse Dishcloth Tutorial using Paired Single Crochet

Today’s tutorial is all about the Farmhouse Dishcloth, using the paired single crochet method.

Please note: this post may contain affiliate links to yarns and other materials at no extra cost to you.

The paired single crochet is also often called “interlocking single crochet” and is done by crocheting twice into each stitch. You can learn more about this technique in the Stitch of the Week tutorials.

For this pattern, I recommend using a sturdy 100% cotton yarn such as Lily Sugar N Cream or Paintbox Cotton yarns. Baby cottons will not stand up to daily uses in the kitchen.

BORDER:

Do not fasten off unless you want to change colors.  If you change colors, start out where you fastened off.  Ch1, turn work so that you are now working down the sides of the cloth.  SC evenly around cloth, putting 2sc in each corner.  SS to top of 1st sc of round.  FO, weave in ends.

This is a nice and quick little project that you can customize the colors of easily. I added two pinstripes on mine for just a little change of color. Changing colors every row makes for a very unique look with this stitch pattern.

Keep an eye out for the Stitch of the Week tutorials coming soon on the blog. We hope you enjoy this pattern, there are several more to come! If you would like an ad-free version of this pattern, you may also download it from our Ravelry store here.
