Giles Table Runner

A Free Knitting Pattern





I love refreshing patterns, making them into something new with a fresh purpose. Some of you might recognize parts of this pattern from my Wellsley Cowl. I changed a few stitches, added a lace border and used cotton yarn. In the end I have a really great table runner. Some times we don't need a new thing, we just need a new perspective. I love how this pattern turned out. It also helps that I love the color yellow. I think this would also look really great in a neutral color or going bold with red.

If you are looking for a crochet table runner this one here has a very similar look to this one.

Rustic Dinner Scarf

A free Crochet Pattern 



It's still pretty hot where I live so I have been using my cotton yarn a lot. I love working with cotton when it is hot. How about you? I have some table decor patterns to share with you. This one and a knit version will be coming soon. 


I have a really large table. We bought it when we moved through the Home Depot website. They had free shipping so we knew the table would be waiting for us at our new house. We did not realize just how large it was. Just the table top without the legs was 250 lbs! Don't get me wrong once we got it up the stairs we have loved it. With it being so large the tablecloths that I had already didn't fit, so I have been making table scarves and mats to use instead. 

I wanted something that had texture and lace combined and I'm really pleased. I hope you enjoy the pattern too.
