Supplies for Table Runners

To make a crocheted table runner, you will need a few basic materials:

  1. Yarn: Choose a yarn in the weight and color(s) of your choice. For a crochet table runner, you can use any type of yarn, but it’s best to use a yarn that is easy to wash and easy to work with, such as acrylic or cotton yarn.
  2. Crochet hook: Select a crochet hook in the appropriate size for your yarn. The recommended hook size is usually listed on the yarn label, but it can also vary depending on the stitch pattern you’re using.
  3. Scissors: You will need a pair of scissors to cut the yarn.
  4. Tapestry needle: A tapestry needle (aka yarn needle, darning needle) is used to weave in the ends of the yarn and finish off your table runner.

Optional materials that may be useful for making table runners include stitch markers, which can help you keep track of your stitches, and a ruler or measuring tape to check the size of your runner.

Overall, the materials you need to make a crochet table runner are simple and easy to find in most stores, making crocheting a runner great for beginner and experienced crafters alike.


Granny Square table runners are typically made with simple crochet stitches that anyone can learn, even if they’re new to making home decor pieces. Below, you’ll find the most common stitches used to make granny squares, and they’re easy to pick up.

  1. Chain stitch (ch): This is the most basic crochet stitch and is used to create the foundation chain for the granny square.
  2. Slip stitch (sl st): This stitch is used to join the beginning and end of a round or to fasten off your yarn.
  3. Single crochet (sc): This stitch creates a tight, dense fabric and is often used for the center of the granny square.
  4. Half double crochet (hdc): Hdc stitches can be used in a variety of crochet projects, including granny squares. They can create a slightly taller stitch than the single crochet, which can add texture and interest to your crochet work.
  5. Double crochet (dc): This stitch creates a taller stitch than the single crochet and half double crochet, and are sometimes used for the shell stitches that form the corners of the granny square.
  6. Triple crochet (tr): This stitch creates an even taller stitch than the double crochet and can be used for a more lacy look in the granny square.

You can make many different types of granny square table runners by using simple stitches in different ways.
