Punch Runner

Free crochet pattern!

Punch Runner

Punch Runner came about as a quick project for instant gratification. This table runner is crocheted in worsted weight yarn with a largish hook, and the stitch pattern is simply a two-row repeat. You’ll get the hang of it in no time, and it looks so interesting without having to learn a bunch of new stuff. Sometimes we just need to play with yarn and be happy, yeah? Well here it is.

Getting Started

Stitches:  Ch, dc, dc3tog (double crochet 3 together)
Yarn:  Worsted (#4) approx. 380 yards
Shown in WeCrochet’s Chroma Twist worsted in “Tiki,” 2 balls
Hook:  J10/6mm
Sizes: 17″ wide, 48″ long (but please make it however you want!)

Gauge:  15 st x 5 rows = 4″, in patt

NOTES:
~ The dc3tog in row 3 will be worked in current sp (space,) next dc, and next sp. This means that each sp will contain both the last “leg” of the dc3tog you just finished, and the first “leg” of the dc3tog you are making now. This may not make much sense yet, just reading it, but once you’re making the pattern, you should see it 🙂

~This runner is meant to be made for any size table, I just wrote the pattern for *my* size table. You can add or subtract stitches in increments of 5 to make it wider or narrower, and you can work as many or as few rows as you want. Just remember that the yardage listed is for this particular size. If you make yours bigger, you’ll need more yarn.
