"Lovely Waters" Tablerunner



I'm so excited!!!! My new pattern is published....the "Lovely Waters" Tablerunner. This was one of my more time consuming, but rewarding patterns.

"Company coming? And most of them are knitters? No need to fear....just whip up this beautiful and useful tablerunner and you will dazzle your guests without even trying. Perfect for your dining room but can just as easily be for a living room table or dresser top. Enjoy knitting this unique lace pattern as well as creating your own design for the beaded fringe. Voila!"

Here are the details:

FEATURES:

-Thick, square center piece for placing your vase of flowers, bowl of fruit or main dish for a meal.
-Beautiful zigzag lace pattern flowing from each side of the center square towards the ends of your table.
-Gorgeous beaded, fringed ends...I used glass and swarovski crystal beads to match the yarn.
-The lace sides can be made longer or shorter, depending on your table length.
-Takes only 1 skein of Yarn Botanika DK superwash merino sock yarn (around 400 yards) or Yarn Botanika Radiance DK Merino/tencel handpainted yarn.

You can buy the pattern from me (see "Buy Now" link on right) or at One Planet Yarn and Fiber.

Check out the One Planet Yarn and Fiber Blog for more details and pictures, as well as some of their other lovely yarns that would work with this pattern.

I think that is a really neat idea - and a great way for me to use some of my sock yarn stash. I'm bookmarking this as a reminder idea...it would be a neat christmas gift too! How time consuming would you say? I'm thinking of my current table runners / lengths of things around my house... Nice job!

Hi Becca! The center seed stitch square is a snap to make. The two side lace panels use a 13 (I think...have to relook at the pattern) row lace repeat, though the alternate rows are very easy. They shouldn't take you more than a week or two if you work on them a little every day. It doesn't look like much until you block it. That's when the lace blooms and you can see the amazing zig zag pattern.

Thanks for the compliment and I hope you'll send me a picture when you make one! Gina : )

That is gorgeous, Gina! Of course, I could never have a table runner at my house; the kitties would think it was a new toy :)

Lora said...

Yeah Gina!! Very pretty pattern! Looks great in your dining room. So pretty. I love your house. :)

I just saw this on Ravelry
I love it! I wish I had a table that wasn't covered in junk so I could make one.

Beautiful, Gina... and the yarn you picked is pretty, too. A very fitting name with that yarn and pattern.

This table runner is gorgeous. I have just discovered your podcast, and spent the last three days listening to all of them! I can't wait for the next one.

Cayli said...

Love the table runner! Great gift idea, I think my Mom needs one.

kimberly said...

Pretty!! I need that table first before I could possibly make one. :-) Love it!

Deirdre said...

I just came across your podcast-now I am trying to catch up with all of the episodes. Great job, I'm hooked!
The tablerunner is very creative and beautiful! I am knitting my second lace pattern, it is going very slowly. Once finished, the tble runner is next! Of course, at this rate, that may take a few years.
