What is a Table Runner?

A table runner is a decorative narrow cloth that is placed in the middle of the dining table or side table. They protect the tabletop and add a pop of color to the room décor.

Join Crochet Coasters to Make a Farmhouse Table Runner

Seriously, that is exactly what I did. I had made as many crochet coasters as I could using a skein of cotton yarn. I used a skein of Peaches and Crème in Royal and a Sugar’n Cream in Potpourri. Each skein yielded 6 coasters out of each one and have enough yarn leftover for joining them together to make a table topper.

Generally, a table runner is a long narrow cloth that is placed I the middle of the table; however, I did a few arrangements of them to see if I would like them in a different placement.

It is hard to pick just one arrangement.

Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked in the round as a square.

Start the pattern with a magic circle or a chain 4 and a slip stitch into the first chain stitch to make a loop. You can find a tutorial for the magic circle in the crochet tutorials.

Each chain 4 counts as a treble crochet.

This pattern can be used with a new color for each round, a solid yarn color, or a variegated yarn.

Repeat between [ ] 3 more times.  End with a SL ST into the beginning ST.

Finishing

Work a chain stitch, cut the yarn off leaving about a 12-inch tail. Draw the yarn through the chain stitch and pull snug. Use the yarn needle to weave in the yarn tail and snip off excess yarn.

Crochet Square Pattern

Joining Crochet Squares

Arrange the squares until you find a placement that you like the look of for the table runner. Use the leftover yarn pieces to join.

I used a tapestry needle to join the coasters where they touch by just weaving the yarn back and forth. To get the yarn to the next spot, I just weaved the yarn through the crochet loops of the same color yarn until the next place where they joined.

Once all joined together, I weaved in the yarn end and removed the excess.  

If you want to make this using a different color of yarn for each round, The Scrappy Clouds Crosshatch Coaster might be just what you are looking for.
