This is a very simple woven stitch (also called “tweed stitch”) pattern that can look very elegant when worked with a neutral-colored natural fiber like this Euroflax linen yarn and when finished with a beaded trim of shells, wood and stone. Of course, you can make it in any color you want and use any trim you want–dress it up or dress it down, as you wish.

This runner can also be made to fit any size dining table, coffee table, bedside table, console table, end table, picnic table, farmhouse table…. you get the idea! The size I call for here used exactly the amount of yarn called for, and the woven stitch requires an even number of stitches, so plan the size of your runner accordingly.

Finished Measurements:9″ wide X 60″ long/23 X 152.5 cm

Materials:

  • 4 skeins Louet Euroflax Sport Linen Yarn, color: 30, cream
  • Size F crochet hook (or size needed to obtain gauge)
  • Large tapestry needle
  • Straight pins
  • Sewing needle and thread in complementary color
  • Shell, stone and wooden bead trim (I purchased the trim shown at Yarndogs, a lovely little knitting boutique with a great name in Los Gatos, CA, but you can probably find equivalent trim at any good sewing store)

Gauge: 24 stitches and 16 rows = 4″/10 cm in woven stitch with two strands of yarn held together

How to Crochet Table Runner:

Foundation Row: chain 56 stitches with two strands of yarn held together (note: work with a double strand throughout)

Row 1: work 1 SC in second ch from hook, *chain 1, skip 1 ch, work 1 SC in next ch, rep from * to end, turn.

Row 2: chain 2 sts, skip first SC, *work 1 SC in first ch space, chain 1, skip 1 SC, rep from *, ending with 1 SC in 1st chain space, turn.

Repeat Row 2 until Runner is 60″ long. Tie off.

How to Finish:

Weave in all loose ends with the tapestry needle.

Cut two pieces of trim 10″/25.5 cm long each (1″/2.5 cm longer than the width of your runner). Cut off all hanging beads less than 1/2″/1.25 cm from ends. Fold over these ends and pin trim to undersides of 9″/23 cm edges of Runner. With sewing needle and matching thread, whipstitch trim in place securely (see close-up photo below). Repeat for the other edge.
