Table Runner with Crochet Edging


My friend Sarah at Repeat Crafter Me made this table runner using the Sharp Crochet Hook and Pattern Book. Ahhh, I love everything about it, the colors, the scallop edging, EVERYTHING!!

I loved this project so much that I decided to make my own...

This is a really easy project- about 1-2 hours depending on your crochet pattern. You just use the Sharp Crochet Hook to crochet right through the fabric.

-I bought 1/4 yard of fabric- duck canvas from Hobby Lobby. I chose this fabric because I thought it would work for a variety of seasons.
-I used size 10 crochet thread and the Sharp Crochet Hook to crochet the edging
-That's it! No pretreating the fabric, no hemming the edge, nothing. So easy!
-If your stitches are 1/4" apart, you don't need to serge, zig-zag, or hem the edge before crocheting.
 I did a more decorative edging on the two short ends and a basic edging on the long ends.

 The candy bowl was full before I started taking pictures... hmmm...

 I love how it turned out!

The pattern for the edging on the short end is from the Crochet Edging Handbook.

Thanks again for the great inspiration- Repeat Crafter Me! You always impress me!
