How do you crochet a table runner?

Most table runners are super simple to crochet. Most commonly, they are made from a simple rectangle, so there aren’t any tricky shaping techniques.

Instead, you just start with a chain that is the width you want your table runner to be. Then you work in your desired stitch until you get the length you want.

This is a great way to make a customizable table runner—or you can follow one of the patterns I’m about to show you!

Other Types of Crochet Table Runners

While table runners worked back and forth in rows are the most common, they can be crocheted in other ways too! Here are some other techniques I’ve seen:

  • Connect crochet motifs together to form a table runner (squares, circles, etc.)
  • Make a simple rectangle and then sew things on after to embellish
  • Make the table runner length-wise instead of starting with the width

More Questions About Crocheted Table Runners

How do I make my table runner wider?

In order to make a table runner wider, you will need to figure out the stitch multiple of the pattern you are following.

For example, if the stitch multiple is 3+2, you would need to make a chain in a multiple of 3, with 2 more extra chains on the end.

In this example, your pattern may say to start with 62 chains, but you could also start with 65, 68, etc.

Now keep in mind this can be very pattern specific; it may not be possible for more complex patterns. If your pattern includes instructions for adjusting the size, definitely follow that!

How do I make my table runner longer?

Generally speaking, it is easier to adjust the length of a rectangle table runner! You can keep going in the established stitch pattern of the design until it reaches your desired length.

If you have an extra long table, this is a great option!

Conclusion

Table runner crochet patterns are (for the most part) very easy! A table runner is a great project when you need something simple and fairly quick. I hope you enjoyed this post and found the perfect pattern to start next!
