Did you pick your favourite crochet table runner pattern…Or 2. Below are some tips for creating your masterpiece

Are you ready to crochet your table runners from our list of 42 Crochet Table Runner Patterns? Let me then share with you a few important things you should consider when crocheting your table runner.

In designing your table runner, look at patterns for inspiration and guidance. Using a pattern can help to take the guesswork out of creating your table runner.

A pattern will recommend the best type of yarn and hook size. It will also specify how many stitches to cast on and provide instructions for how to work the rows. We have here listed are free and paid patterns you can choose from.

Choosing The Right Yarn for you Crochet Table Runner

Next, choose the yarn type. Since your table runner may see a lot of wear and tear, you may want to use a yarn that holds up well when you wash and dry it, such as a cotton or cotton-blend yarn.

However, you can use any type of yarn you like to make your table runner. You could go with a dishcloth yarn or opt for less expensive acrylic yarn.

Select a yarn color. You may use any color you like or use a variety of colors to create your table runner. Try using a yarn color that will go well with your kitchen or dining room decor.

If your kitchen has a theme of sunshine and sunflowers, make a table runner using yellow, brown, and orange yarn.

And, select a crochet hook. Lighter yarn types require smaller hooks and chunkier yarns require larger hooks.


Wrapping Up the Crochet Table Runner Pattern Collection

Lastly, Measure your table to decide on table runner proportions. Table runners come in many different lengths and widths and you may want your table runner to be longer or wider depending on the table.

You may also choose if the runner hangs over the edges of the table or just covers part or all of the top of the table.

For more decorative patterns for your home, check out this page for Crochet Decors. We have tons of patterns you can choose from.

We hope it helps! Happy Creating your favorite crochet table runner pattern!
