Is it just me or does this stitch have a thousand names? Linen, moss, granite, seed, woven. I couldn’t call it all 5 so I picked Linen….. I mean it is a table linen after all!
I have a kind of small table so I crocheted this table runner to complement its size. If you would like to make yours longer you will need to chain a multiple of 2 and then just follow the pattern. If you want it wider just add more rows. Keep in mind though that making changes to its length or width will require more yarn.
Do you want to know my very favorite part of this project? There is ZERO ends to weave in. Yes, you are reading that correctly. ZERO ends. We will be adding fringe to the ends with all your tails from changing colors.

Ch 112. Be sure not to chain too loose otherwise your foundation edge will ripple a little.

Row 2: Join new color, ch 1. Sc in first sc, sc in ch 1 sp. *Ch 1, skip next sc, sc in next ch 1 sp. Repeat from * across. Sc in last sc. Finish off and turn

Depending on what kind of color change you used you may want to secure your tails by tying them together in a simple knot 2 at a time. This will ensure nothing becomes loose.
I added fringe along each end of the table runner following the same color pattern I used for the body of the piece. You could do it this way or mix it up and do it randomly. Totally up to you.
To make the fringe, cut 2 equal lengths of yarn (I cut about 8-9 inches). Insert hook into space where you want to attach your fringe, drape yarn over hook and pull through space to make a loop. Yarn-over with all 4 strands of yarn and pull through loop.
Do this along both ends. Trim to desired length ( I cut mine to about 2 inches) And that’s it!
