Crochet Tutorial: Halloween Table Runner

Crochet Tutorial: Halloween Table Runner

Many times I have made suggestions of ideas on what you can make using the squares from our 365 Days of Granny Squares. Recently, I designed the Spinning Spider Granny Square (Number 266) and The Web We Weave Granny Square (Number 246). I began thinking about a project that I could make to tie these two in together that would work for a table runner or other Halloween related item.

I decided to create a look that has the spider spinning from the web. Doing that required a bit of adjustment on the placement of the spider on the square. In my original Spinning Spider Granny Square Video Tutorial, I demonstrated how to make the square with the spider running vertically on the square. In the Table Runner, I made a few stitch adjustments, I turned the spider to go on a diagonal to achieve the desired results for my finished work, allowing me to run Slip Stitches creating a web strand from the bottom (spinneret) of my spider to the Web square. Please see the video tutorial for instructions below to make this adjustment.

runner

Then, I created duplicate sets of square Numbers 246 and 266 of our 365 Days of Granny Squares to create the ends of our runner. I combined these blocks with the solid granny square (Number 2) that I used with various color combinations of black and orange or black and white to match the other squares in this project. Note: You do not have to make these adjustments nor use my colors. This is creator’s choice.

tablerunner

This video is a tutorial on how to assemble the squares and add the border detail to finish off this great Halloween table runner. You will find the links and videos to the squares that I have already filmed prior to this project. Not interested in the runner? Why not make additional squares to make a lapghan or blanket? Let your imagination be your guide.

This darling basket weave baby boy hat is the second piece to our little boy layette set we have been working on. This cute little cap is using a new stitch giving a bit of pattern and texture to our set. As we continue with these items, they can be altered to fit a little boy or little girl simply by changing colors. It is a very versatile hat.
