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.

Red, White, and Blue Plarn Crochet Placemats
Placemats like these would make a fabulous addition to your outdoor picnic table, especially when celebrating holidays like Memorial Day and the 4th of July. They are made with plarn, an interesting material to upcycle for use in crocheting placemats. This free pattern also comes with instructions for complementary plarn coasters.
Note that it's not recommended to use these placemats for hot dishes, but they're ideal when serving sandwiches, salad, pickles, or other similar picnic fares. Best of all, plarn is easy to make (for free) using readily available materials. And of course, you could opt to use different plastic bag colors to make similar crochet placemats without the red, white, and blue theme.

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!
