Table Runner project

Posted on: April 2, 2018

Blankets and other Household items are not my specialties but I really wanted to add a splash of colors in my living room this spring. I wasn’t sure what I was looking for until I ran into a table runner pattern while looking for ideas on Pinterest. Created by a lady named Marinkle, it’s a simple but beautiful crocheted piece made of hexagons that can be used in different ways or different projects. I was hooked from the beginning!

If you love playing with colors like I do, this tutorial is a treat. I picked two shades of blue, light brown and tan colors as well as some white for the border (I used Lily Sugar’n Cream yarn). I had to make 22 hexagons for my table runner, and it didn’t take very long as each piece only took half an hour to crochet.

My table is very narrow so I only make two rows of hexagons instead of three. The pieces are joined together with a single crochet but the pattern also suggests also using a slip stitch as an alternative.

I really think it’s a great project for beginners, the tutorial is very easy to follow and simple enough to understand. I had a great time working on this project and I loved how it turned out. It’s the first thing people notice when they walk into the living room, it really stands out.

I intend to make matching cushions for the sofa someday, and coasters. I think it will really make the room sparkle with colors. If you are interested in this pattern, it’s free and available on Merinkle’s blog.

Happy crocheting!
