Looking to winter and Christmas this year has been all about the men for me, which is what got me thinking about the stag placemat. Note: this post may contain affiliate links. Stags are universal – men, women and children like stags and your colour …
Tag: gift idea for her
Do you agree with me that the Ava Table Runner is just gorgeous? It’s one of the reasons why I named it after one of my nieces. She might only be almost 5 but she was so proud when I told her I had named it after her lol. Preened like a peacock she did!
Anyway, this one looks like it would be quite tricky. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t advise trying this one if you have only been crocheting for a couple of weeks! But I would say to a confident beginner or intermediate crocheter to give it a go!
My Table runner was 11.5″ wide by 60″ long unblocked. Because of the bounce that this stitch has blocking will extend the width by a good 2 or 3 inches easily if you want it to or just use a bigger hook. I didn’t see a need to block my runner at all.
Check out the texture!
This stitch is just GORGEOUS and so tactile. I just love feeling it.
And the lionbrand 24/7 cotton that I used is just perfect!!
In fact I have plans to create a whole set using this stitch! So stay tuned for that.
Skills needed to complete this pattern
You should know how to:
- single crochet,
- double crochet,
- treble crochet,
- work infront of previous stitches made
- work behind previous stitches made
You will need to use:
- #4 weight yarn or cotton of choice. I used 4 skeins of Lion Brand 24/7 cotton in shade succulent
- 4mm hook (but you can use a 5mm if preferred – the width may end up being slightly larger as a result)
- Stitch markers (optional)
