Rustic Crochet Cable Table Runner - Free Crochet Pattern

Okay friends, we are round the last few days where we still have time to work up some holiday patterns in time to enjoy them this season! Check out this table runner!


I've worked this up using a chunky yarn and a large gauge crochet hook so the stitches really pop. The large gauge also helps us work this up quickly. This is a great way to spruce up your holiday table or gift to your dinner host this season! If you're new to crochet cable stitches, do not worry! We have included a few step-by-step photos that walk you through the "tricky' parts, you'll be a pro in no time.


Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
