The Jasara Table Runner
With the holidays quickly approaching (right around the corner) I decided to finally tackle a project that I’ve had in the back of my mind for a while now but always on the back burner, a table runner! My dining room table has been looking woefully incomplete, and a table runner is just what I needed to complete our in home holiday décor.
As you all might be starting to realize, I love and adore texture in crochet items, and always try to work up a pattern that includes a beautiful texture and details. The stitch used here gives a lovely mini-Christmas tree detail to the piece, and I really love how it turned out! I’ve never used the stitch before, and I’m sure there is an actual fancy name somewhere on the internet for it, but I couldn’t find it so I made one up! The yarn used is Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK, which is a soft and very easy to work with Lightweight-3 cotton yarn, but any Lightweight-3 yarn should do beautifully for you in this pattern.
