Crochet Table Runner Free Pattern

Hi there! I’m Julie from OneLittleHook and I have the honor of sharing the pattern for my t-shirt yarn table runner with you today. The Crochet Table Runner using t-shirt yarn was inspired for my love of texture and of creating easy, but interesting crochet and Tunisian crochet patterns.

You can also find free crochet patterns for home decor like Star Pillow Free Crochet pattern, Cestino Basket Free Crochet Pattern or Crochet Chevron Basket using t-shirt yarn.

I’m especially excited at how versatile this pattern is…

-You can crochet it just as is, which makes a perfect coffee table runner.

-You can grab yourself an extra ball of KnitzNPurlz t-shirt yarn and make this runner longer, which would be perfect for a dining table runner.

-You can crochet the runner as-is, but leave the fringe off and it would make a lovely placemat (be sure to grab 1 skein of t-shirt yarn for each placemat).

-You can use it as a decorative runner for the top of your dresser or nightstand.

***size customizations are provided in the pattern notes section***.

Crochet Table Runner Free Pattern

Skill Level: Easy

Measurements: 11 inches x 14 inches (not including fringe)

Gauge: 7 DC x 5 rows = 4 inches x 4 inches

What you will need:

109 yards Knitz N Purlz T-Shirt yarn

10 mm crochet hook

Stitch markers


Abbreviations, stitch knowledge:

ch – chain

sl st – slip stitch

dc – double crochet

Pattern Notes:

To adjust the length of this runner, chain any odd number.

To adjust the width of this runner, work additional repeats of rows 2 and 3.

Let’s get crocheting!

Maker Tip: When you begin this project, make the tail of the slip knot 7 inches long so it can be incorporated into the fringe rather than weaved into the work.

Chain 27

Use a stitch marker in the last chain to mark this stitch. You will crochet into this chain after the work is turned

Row 1: DC in the 4th ch from the hook, DC in each st across, turn (25)

Use a stitch marker in the chain 1’s at each edge of the project where a chain 1 is worked. This helps make the stitch easier to locate when crocheting into it on the next row.

Row 2: ch 1 (counts as a st), *dc in next st, sl st in next st, repeat from * across, last sl st will be worked in the top of the previous row’s turning chain, turn (25)

The chain 1 counts as a stitch, so you will not crochet into the first stitch in this row, but rather you will begin by working a DC in the next stitch. The white arrows in this image indicate the chain 1 and first stitch. The pink arrow indicates the next stitch

The last slip stitch in this row is worked in the top of the previous row’s turning chain, which is marked with the stitch marker

Row 3: ch 3 (counts as a st), dc in each st across, last dc will be worked in the ch-1 from the previous row, turn (25)

Row 4 – 13: repeat rows 2 and 3 .

Cut yarn leaving approx a 7 inch tail, fasten off. This tail (as well as the tail from the slip knot at the beginning of the project) can be incorporated in the fringe siding rather than having to weave it into the project.

To create the fringe, cut 26 (or preferred amount – I like fuller fringe so I cut 38) 14-inch lengths of yarn. Divide in half and attach to each of the short edges. Trim to even or to desired length.

Hi, I’m Julie. I grew up with a passion for crafting, but I didn’t pick up a crochet hook until about 7 years ago, and I haven’t been able to put it down since! I have a passion for creating eye-catching crochet texture with an emphasis on making patterns that are easy enough for beginners and interesting enough for a seasoned crocheter to enjoy. It’s truly amazing what you can make with one little hook. You can find me on the web and social media: Website , Pinterest , Instagram, Facebook .

Happy crocheting,
