Free Crochet Table Runner Patterns

A crocheted table runner is a great way to add a little something extra to a dining table or coffee table. Crocheters like making table runners because they are smaller projects with an easy back and forth stitch pattern, similar to a crochet blanket.

Below, you’ll find a collection of some of the most popular crochet patterns for table runners that you can make.

The table runner patterns are broken down by skill levels and also have the yarn you’ll want to use listed with them for easy browsing. Enjoy!
