Lacy Table Runner from Scarf Pattern

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.

Have you ever changed your plans for a project part of the way through?
