Crochet Thanksgiving Runner For Table

What Is Farmhouse Decor?

Right now farmhouse home decor is hot and so many people have fallen in love with this style. The farmhouse style is what I had in mind when I was designing this table runner. But what is farmhouse decor?

Spacejoy explains that farmhouse decor is about simplicity, coziness, warmth, practicality, neutral colors, and vintage inspiration. Moreover, it’s about craftsmanship. So simply by making your own crochet table runner by hand, you’re embracing farmhouse decor.

Plus, they add that “it’s all about being open and inviting.” What’s more inviting than a Thanksgiving table runner that literally expresses thanks across it. It’s a warm, cozy reminder to everyone at your dinner table (even if that’s just you and your family) that you are grateful to be there together. That’s what farmhouse decor is all about.

I wanted the perfect lettering to be displayed across my table. So I worked hard on this Thanksgiving table runner free crochet pattern to make sure that the lettering embraced the details that make up farmhouse decor.

By the way, have you seen the Harvest Crochet Pillow Cover? While I display my pillow in a different room, by using the same yarn it brings a cohesive look to my decorating. During a different season of the year, I could perhaps put the Thankful crochet table runner on a coffee table in the same room as the pillow. Or I could the table runner across the bottom of a guest bed along with the pillow. Although designed as a Thanksgiving table runner, this free crochet pattern is actually very versatile.

I actually have quite a few farmhouse decor patterns here on the site so if that’s something you’re into, search around and see what you can discover.

Thanksgiving Table Runner Crochet Pattern Notes:

  • This pattern is worked from the bottom up in rows and in single crochet sts.
  • After the end of each row turn and ch 1. The ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
  • Since there are a wrong side and a right side to the table runner, I used a combination of intarsia and carrying yarn across the back for the colorwork. Experiment and see what works best for you.
  • Please visit Ways to Work in Colorwork Crochet for a full tutorial on colorwork as well as a FREE Sheep Yarn Bobbin Printable to assist you with this project. No one loves tangles.

Oatmeal Yarn Color is abbreviated as A
Black Yarn color is abbreviated as B

*Special Crochet Tip:

Crochet Table Runner Border:

Row 1: With Color B yarn, join and ch 1, sc in first, ch 1, *skip 1, sc in next*; repeat from * to * until last stitch, sc in the last stitch, turn.

Row 2: With Color A yarn, join and ch 1, sc in first, *ch 1, skip 1, sc in next*; repeat from * to * until last stitch, sc in the last stitch, turn.

Repeat Border Rows 1-2 on other side of table runner.

Finishing the Thanksgiving Table Runner:

Fasten off and weave in ends. Continue to optional fringe.

Crochet Edge Fringe (Optional):

It is completely optional if you would like to put a fringe on the ends of your table runner. I’ve fallen in love with twisted fringe and I think you just might too. For video instructions visit:

Hey there! Absolutely love this! I'm having a hard time finding the right yarn. If you don't mind...what weight and yardage is the vanna's? I'm going to try to find something similar so I can make this for my grandmother and mother in law!

I am just working the border and am a little confused. You say “sc in first, ch 1, skip 1, s in next” is the single “s” supposed to be a slip stitch, or a single crochet? Thanks!

Hey there! I had your free download but now the page is gone. I guess I was supposed to save it (I don’t have a printer). Any chance I can have it again? If not it’s ok, I can still use the one with the ads
