An update of a golden oldie, easier to make and an updated yarn suggestion.


Flower Table Runner free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

Flower Table Runner
Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This was one of the first patterns I designed; I have updated it to make it easier to follow, and to use a yarn that is not discontinued. It was originally designed to take the place of a glass inset on a table at my friend’s tea shop. The ends can be made longer to make this a long table runner, or they can be kept as is for a short table runner or a table topper.

Backing:
If you are making this piece washable, then wash it now, along with the backing fabric. This way if they are going to shrink different amounts it will happen before they are connected.

Cut a backing piece of fabric ¼ inch larger then the finished piece all around. Fold and press the edges of the fabric in ½ inch all around. This will make your backing ¼ inch smaller all around then your crocheted piece. Pin your backing fabric to the underside of your piece and hand stitch down.

Block piece – Sample used Unicorn Clean Fiber Wash for blocking
