The table runner :)

Oh hello lovelies!

It is such a beautiful day today and I’m in love… deeply madly crazy in love with my latest finished project… Are you ready to fall too? I’m sure you are ;)

Let’s have some close up pics …

I love love love this simple graphic square…I think it is simple but beautiful… and I love it even more because it is the fruit of my imagination… my own drawing… :)

and I love the whole result…the table runner in all its glory…all these bright and beautiful colors mixed together in a lovely patchwork…

I feel happy whenever I enter the sitting room :)

Now for the part you are all waiting for: The how to…

I crocheted this table runner with a thin cotton yarn called “Camilla 6/4″ and a 2mm crochet hook. I made it by joining as I go the squares together in a randomly use of colors…

I drew for you my friend the graphic chart of this square… It is right here:

As you noticed, the joining part was made as-I-go with round 5 (in black in the chart) and it is done where I put the arrows…(Instead of the middle chain a slip joining stitch)

Each square was done in a different color and I made a very simple edging (1sc, 4ch, 1sc) all around the whole table runner…

I am in love with it (did I already told you that?? I don’t think so :D) and I think that this graphic square will be beautiful if used to make coasters, cushions or a summer blanket why not?

So, my lovely friend, I’ll have to leave you now with a last pic…

and wish you a wonderful day!

P.S: I draw all my graphic charts including this one using Corel Draw (a graphic design software) as many of you keep asking me :)

and one last thing: Some of you asks me if I can explain some of the charts with written words and I am so sorry about that but I just can’t do it sometimes… I am unable to do it :( It is too difficult for me as I myself cannot follow an english written pattern :( not yet! but one day… ;)

Kisses to all!

    Thank you so much for this pattern. I really love the look of it. I am thinking I need to try this very soon. :)

  13. Christine says:

    awww…….that is so special of you! I was scrolling through the pictures and thinking “I wonder how you joined the squares” and BAM! there is was in your chart….THANK YOU SO MUCH! I love charts and almost won’t even do a pattern if there isn’t a chart.

    The table runner is so happy! I just bought the new “Cotton-ish” yarn (~50/50 cotton/acrylic) here in the States, and it has beautiful bright colors and this runner is perfect to do with this yarn.

  14. Debi says:

    Very pretty, indeed! And I just LOVE it every time you show glimpses of your home. I think you have the happiest looking home ever–seriously, how could one not feel cheerful in those surroundings?!! :D

  15. Daine M says:

    I absolutely love your tablerunner and the block you designed to make it! Thank you so much for posting the chart — I much prefer following a chart than reading words!! And English is my first language :) Thanks again!!

    Wow! It is sooo beautiful! Nice work… I really love how you were able to take all of these very different colors and just make them work so beautifully together! And the simple white trim is perfect. Beautiful! :)

    Très joli ton chemin de table ! L’association de couleurs est parfaite.
    Et bravo aussi pour le superbe bouquet de fleurs. :)

  21. Lisa says:

    i love your table runner; and, as always, your colors are so pretty.
    I like working a pattern from a chart, mostly if it’s a doily or bed spread type pattern.
    Thank you for sharing your patterns and all the pictures of the work you do.

    I love the table runner and the square you designed. I now want to make one for my dining room table. The cotton yarn you used is not very thick is it?

    I check in your site often. I really enjoy seeing what you are working on. You are very creative.

  23. [...] you are interested, I’ve followed a fantastic pattern which I found in Le Monde de Sucrette again. As you can see, if you keep going making squares, you could make a table-runner out of them. [...]

  24. Barbara Bryson says:

    Maybe someone who knows how to read charts would volunteer to translate the chart into written pattern. It should would help me as I don’t know how to read a chart. Anyone interested?

  25. Andrea says:

    I am so thankful for your blog. The other day I just had to do something other than studying or writing papers. So I chose some yarn from my stash and started crocheting. No pattern, just going for it. Well the corners are not working out, the sides are warping…I got frustrated. Today I got you new post in my email and it reminded me of the runner you made : ). The pattern is already printed and I am looking forward to creating a wonderful runner without encountering more difficulties, all thanks to you sharing your patterns!! : ))
