Hello. I've been busy trying to organise my WIPs to give myself time for all those gorgeous Christmas makes. There's always so much going on this time of year that I always opt for smaller crochet projects. So in that spirit I'm sharing my pattern for this simple crochet table runner. I designed this pattern earlier this year for the 100th issue of Inside Crochet Magazine and recieved such lovely feedback on it...

It's the perfect project to decorate for any celebration. I'm currently making one up with some sparkle yarn for our Christmas table...eek not long now!

The table runner is a join-as-you-go project so is easily adaptable to any size table. You can pick and choose your colour combinations to suit, although I would recommend sticking to cotton Dk for this project (for ease of washing).

I've popped some photos to help guide you if you are new to crochet and have created an inexpensive ad free pdf if, like me, you prefer to print your patterns out. (the pdf also includes a colour chart for the runner shown here). I feel like the pattern may look a bit complicated, but the star is only three rounds and once you start joining the motifs (with slip stitches through the picots) it really is very instinctive.
