I had big plans to crochet a lacy scarf I found on Ravelry.
As it grew, I decided it would be better if it were a table runner.
It was a little too wide to be a scarf, partly due to the yarn I chose. So, what began as a frilly scarf became a perfectly sized ivory table runner.
I used the Tours Scarf pattern on Ravelry, with a few alterations:
- Size B crochet hook
- Artiste #8 Crochet Cotton, in Ivory, 5 balls
- For the foundation chain, chain 79 instead of 112. The pattern will repeat as written over those stitches. Repeat the pattern until piece measures close to 51 inches in length, not stretched.
- On the last round of the edging, I didn’t follow the pattern as written. Instead, I worked a sc in each of the dc’s and the sc’s of the previous row. And, I chained above all of the chains of the previous row. So, the last row of the runner went something like this: *sc, ch, sc, ch* repeat.
Finished size: 12″ x 52″
Have you ever changed your plans for a project part of the way through?
It looks great as a table runner! Creative reuse.
Veronica, thank you! I enjoyed making it.
Wow, that is very impressive! If I attempted that it would probably end up as a dog blanket…
Haha, thanks! It would have been a small dog blanket….
Crochet and book reviews? EEK! I love your blog!
Yes, crochet AND books! Two of may favorite things – besides photography and food, hehe. Have you seen my post ?
I’m still meandering through your blog little by little. Pardon me thickheadedness, but which post?
