Lattice Table Runner

Today, I’m here with a project I’ve been dying to share: the Lattice Table Runner. Months ago, my mom asked for a table runner for her very long (but very pretty) dining table. She’s got a rustic, not-quite-colonial & not-quite-farmhouse aesthetic, so I debated for a long time on what to make. We both envisioned a crisp natural cotton to offset the warm wood of the tabletop, and so I considered a macramé runner, but ultimately decided that was more my style than hers.

So, what to do?

Well, that’s when I realized: filet crochet! It’s classic, simple, and offers a stunning amount of negative space to show off the warm wood tone. For those who have never heard of filet crochet before, it’s basically a grid of (usually) double crochet stitches and chain spaces. For the runner, I went with a very simple diamond motif pattern, which is broken up into 3 segments and divided by equally simple borders.

Now, this runner was designed for an 84-inch table. However, the included chart should provide a basis for adjusting the length as you see fit. Add another diamond or two if you’ve got one of those gorgeous long farmhouse tables, or simply eliminate a diamond if the runner is too long for you.

And now that all that’s out of the way, read on for the free chart and pattern! Or, better yet, check out Etsy, Ravelry, or LoveCrafts for the digital/printable pattern. Every purchase helps me keep the free patterns coming, and just for the price of a cup of coffee!

Pattern Notes:

  • Ch1 & Ch2s at beginning of rows do not count as sts.
  • How to Read Chart: Black squares = ch-sps; white squares = double crochet stitches (except for segments of 3 blank rows; for these, consult “Vertical Band” sections in pattern below.
  • ***According to the graph, Rows 71-72 may appear to be accidental duplicates, but I assure you this is intentional! This is to ensure all vertical bands appear correctly on the RS of the fabric.
  • Yarn Over Slip Stitch (yo-slst): yo, insert hook in next st, yo and draw through st and 2 lps on hook.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Fringe:

Step 1: Cut 2 lengths of yarn, each measuring 10-inches long.

Step 2: Insert crochet hook through first ch on shorter length of runner, then catch yarn and pull through, creating a loop.

Step 3: Use crochet hook to catch the 4 strands, then bring these through the loop created in the previous step. Pull gently to tighten loop, ensuring the 4 strands are about even length.

Step 4: Repeat Steps 1-3 along the edge, skipping every other ch, then repeat on the opposite edge.

Step 5: Lay fringe flat, and then trim and neaten the yarn ends with a pair of sharp scissors.
