I have been looking for the perfect table runner for a while now with no luck. I wanted something that looked vintage but had a modern feel, if that makes any sense. When I saw this lacy stitch I knew it was exactly what I was looking for.
Once you get the hang of the stitch, after the first two rows it turns into the meditative type of crochet project I think we all need lately. One thing to note is that this stitch really looks best once its been blocked, trust me it’s worth it. The final project will also stretch quite a bit when blocked so keep that in mind, My runner stretched about 5 inches after I blocked it.
