Christmas Crochet Table Runner Inspiration
One of my favorite things about crocheting is that I can make myself things that I need, want and like without having to shop around for the “perfect” decoration. My family’s table is the one that I grew up with and, while I love it, it needs some sprucing up for the holidays! I happened to have this classic Christmas red and green yarn in my stash and I worked up a quick table runner in just the right size and colors for my Christmas table centerpiece display.
Crochet this table runner in any size
This table runner can truly be made in any length you’d like it to be. I have little kids and pets, so I opted for a shorter table runner that accents the middle of the table, but you can also continue to make it longer so that it drapes off the edges. I think tassels would be a DARLING addition if you opted for that route.
Use whatever yarn you have in your stash
I’m a classic red/green Christmas decorator, and I happened to have the perfect colors of Lion Brand Tweedle Dee lying around in my stash. This yarn is so perfect for table runners and table clothes. It is light weight but really quite sturdy! But the good news is that you certainly don’t have to use this exact yarn. This pattern is flexible enough for you to use any yarn you’ve got in your stash. Just be sure you have enough to get the length you want for your table runner.
