If you decide to make this table runner I am sure it will be a favorite to display for more than just one holiday. It can be used as a runner on the main table or on a side table for decorations as well. For the fourth of July this would be pretty in red, white and blue stars.

This star bright crochet table runner is really pretty. It is a simple design and it is as simple as making the required number of stars and joining them. The designer elected to use crochet thread so this project will take some time to complete. I think the reason for the intermediate skill level is because of how the starts are joined.

I don't understand how they stars are connected. You fasten off after each star??

Hi horseyfolks, yes, you will fasten off after each star, and then join them using a slip stitch, as shown in the diagram above. We hope this helps! - Editors of AllFreeCrochet

How are the stars connected? I dont understand slip st when they are separate.

This is so pretty. I love table runners. I have an antique wooden dining table that has gorgeous wood grains in it. I don't want to cover them up so a runner is a much better choice. And this one is open just enough to show off the table top underneath.

I love this and can't wait to get it started. I think I'm reading the pattern correctly the stars connect together so you really make one long strip and then the second strip and the third strip. Does the first strip connect to the second strip as it is crocheted? Thanks

This is such a lovely table runner and not hard to do. I like table runners and doilies. They cover and protect furniture and add a nice detail. The great thing about making your own table runner is you get to choose the color and design. You also can wash them. Sure you can lots of money in the store or buy something plastic but plastic leaves a film. Also it is nice to have something you created. Thank you for the pattern.

This is so pretty. It is a great way to cover your furniture and keep it from getting scratched from everyday use. It also add a modern chic look to the typical doilies of the past. Love the star design. These are so easy to make and just add more and less to get a customized size for your needs.

Using a table runner on a cabinet in the living room, dining room or in any part of the house is now very rare. Only a few families who have crochet linen like this Star Bright Crochet Table Runner use them. However, this can be revived by making this beautiful heirloom. There are hundreds other design for this.

We get the pattern ready to read directly above. This will take you a little bit of time to work up, but the end result will be worth your time and effort! Not every project will be a quick weekender project. So, if you are looking for something that will keep you busy for a few weeks, choose this pretty and classic looking snowflake runner.

With it just being my husband and myself at home now, we Empty Nesters rarely use the big dining room table any more. Ive still found a use for table runners though, as they usually fit perfectly on the mantle in my living room. It makes it so easy to swap them out for each season and makes a wonderful basis for any decorating. Thanks for finding this project.

i can't get this pattern to print at all. Using the "P" icon brings up a menu that you can print from but it does not work. Can you please provide a printable pattern?

Either press 'CTRL P' on your keyboard or copy and paste it into a Word document.
