This lovely doily works up in about an hour, and is perfect for scraps. It's also easy to adjust if you want a larger one, or make a bunch and sew together for a table runner. You'll need 47 yards of worsted weight yarn. I used Knit Picks Dishie. The gauge and finished size is not essential for this project. I am using cotton because it's durable, and machine washes and dries well. If you intend on using with warm or moist items, I recommend the cotton (or wool), otherwise any fiber works. Cotton yarn will appear thinner and have more definition than acrylic so it's possible a worsted weight acrylic yarn would produce a slightly larger doily.

I love granny square projects! This doily was designed to match the shape of a rectangle wax warmer, but the beauty of this doily is that it can easily be made larger or smaller by adding or substracting granny squares. You'll need some worsted weight yarn - I used Lily Sugar n Cream because it's durable, and machine washes and dries well. If you intend on using with warm or moist items, I recommend the cotton (or wool), otherwise any fiber works. This doily took me just over an hour to work up.
Granny Chevron Table Runner: Quick and Easy Stitch Pattern
If you love the classic look of chevrons, and the granny stitch in crochet, you'll love this piece! The Granny Chevron Table Runner is made with simple repeats of chain and double crochet stitches, using the classic look of a granny stitch to create a chevron design! This table runner has three distinct chevron points, created by skipping over stitches (decreasing) and adding multiple stitches (increasing). The classic granny stitch is used here to add even more depth and texture to this table runner - making this a true statement piece for the center of your dining table. Once you get started with this piece, and memorize the one repeating row of stitches, it is very quick and easy to work up with very little focus needed! Because this is a piece of decoration, you can use yarn colors, fibers, and weights that you like best. Follow the pattern exactly to make a 44” long runner, or you can easily adjust the pattern length by adding rows until you have a length you love. While this pattern is written to create a table runner, you can use the stitch repeat multiple to work this design into other projects: washcloth, scarf, blanket, rug, and so much more!
Ombre Holiday Table Runner And Placemats
This pretty crochet table runner and placemats are made with the traditional red and green holiday colors but are subtle enough that you can leave them out all fall and winter. No need to put them away after New Years'. My best friend quilts. Growing up, I was always helping my grandmother pick out the fabric and laying out squares for her quilts. I am just in love with quilt designs. It is probably not a surprise that this crochet table runner is inspired by a quilted table runner. You can probably imagine how the stripes for the tree could have been strips of material. Instead of quilting our table runner together, we are just going to change colors when we need to. To give this quilt a multi-color ombre look without buying tons of yarn, we will be using the Red Heart Super Saver Ombre.
