Sea Grass Table Runner

This soft and elegant Sea Grass Table Runner is made using a simple crochet doily pattern.  You can create matching coasters or extend the pattern to make a beautiful afghan or wrap made from doilies.  This pattern looks even better when you mix and match similar colors, like blues, greens, turquoises, and teals.  Great for summer or a simple outdoor wedding, this table runner is fun to make and a great way to work through your yarn stash.

I don't understand row 5 .. on the Sea Grass Table Runner. Can some help me.i really want to make this runner.

Hi there! If you are on Facebook, our AllFreeCrochet Community Facebook Group is very active and wonderfully helpful when it comes to pattern help! You can also visit the Yarnspirations website and take advantage of their live chat or talk to them by phone. Yarnspirations owns Bernat Yarns and they should be able to help with the pattern. Good luck!

Beautiful, but the instructions are confusing. Could someone provide more clarity? I'm just a beginner!

Hi there! I'd suggest posting your question in our AllFreeCrochet community on Facebook! They are a super active group of crocheters and would be able to provide guidance. I hope that helps!

I love this crochet table runner and for anyone who crochets this is a beautiful piece to add to your table o that special someone for a gift. I can see it used for a wedding or even a holiday event or how about your Thanksgiving table. I will have to brush up on my terms a little more but this beauty is worth it. Thanks for posting.

I'm sorry, I don't understand row 4, twice around last dc. First three rows were easy, but not liking row r.

These are terrible instructions for a beginner. I could not get past 4th round. Have no idea what the stuff in brackets means as opposed stuff between and even with help could not work it out. While the stitches are simple the instructions are a mess. Don't bother.

Forgive me, if this is a silly question. this is my first try with such patterns. 3rd rnd: Sl st in next ch-2 sp. Ch 1. 1 sc in same sp as last sl Can someone tell me what is "sp." here Thanks

Hi chinchandran--No worries! I'm glad you asked! SP stands for space...so you're going to slip stitch in the next ch2 space from the previous round, then chain 1. Hope that helps! --FaveCrafts Editors

Hi there, Here is an explanation of the picot stitch: http://abt.cm/SjOAr5. Hope this helps!
