My sixth kit came via mail truck yesterday afternoon. It is a charming “Woven Ribbon Runner”. It is crocheted or knitted in the woven pattern similar to the Tartan Afghan I made a few months ago. This is great because it will give me some more hands on practice with this technique while at the same time allowing me to experience the woven part. Only this time I will be using ribbon instead of yarn.
The kit came with two skeins of medium weight (4) “Premier Dream Yarn” color “Camelback” and super bulky weight (6) ribbon yarn. There is no skill level marked on the pattern but looking it over I would say it is an easy one. The Table Runner is composed of single crochet (Single Crochet), treble crochet (Triple/Treble Crochet) and the reverse single crochet (Reverse Single Crochet). I have always loved the reverse single crochet for an edging. It also came with an insert with the corrections to some of the rows in the original pattern.
If you turn to the back of the pattern leaflet you will discover an interesting article on “Making Holes in Crochet and Knit”. I never really considered the uses of holes in crocheting until I read this. I thought that was a nice added touch.
The finished size of the Table Runner will be 35″ x 13 1/2″ which will be the perfect size for a hall table I have that has scramming for a crochet accent.
Until next week, Keep those hooks flying.
