Inside: Free pattern for the crochet Lacy Runner. Includes written instructions for 5 sizes and tutorial videos showing the lace stitch pattern.

Crochet your way to beautiful home!

The Lacy Runner adds a touch of simple elegance to your table.  This table runner uses a medium-weight, mercerized cotton yarn that washes well and shows off the beautiful lace design. 

This pattern features the lacy tipped blocks stitch pattern also seen in the Lacy Placemats pattern. However, this pattern is worked from side to side unlike the placemat that you crochet from bottom to top. This make is easy to adjust the length as you crochet. I’ve got tips below to help make just the right length for your table.

The lacy tipped blocks stitch pattern uses a chain multiple of 8+4 and a 2-row repeat.  Each 2-row repeat adds approximately 1” to the total length.

Measuring: I included 5 common lengths, but every table is different.  Measure the length of your table.  Then decide if you want the runner to fit in the middle of the table with room on the ends for plates.  If so, you need your runner to be shorter than your table.  But if you want it to drape over the end of the table you will need to lengthen it. Typically, add 12” to your runner to overhang 6” on each end.
