To go with my Landon series, I’ve designed a beautiful table runner perfect for the dining room table or entryway all year ’round. My Landon series is an easy crochet line that features the moss stitch aka the linen stitch, which is comprised of simple single crochet stitches and chains. It creates such a beautiful, woven texture.
HUGE thank you to Candace of T & C Crafters – I designed this table runner, but she worked up the actual sample for me, and she did a fantastic job! Guys, team work makes the dream work.
Looking for Some Matching Pieces to Complete a Set?
My Landon Coasters would make a great matching piece. Use them as coasters on the dining room table, or as a small doily to house a candle or small vase.
For matching kitchen pieces, my Landon Washcloths are perfect. They can also be used as doilies on an entryway table, or as napkins on the dining room table.
Another great matching piece for the kitchen is my Landon Hand Towel, or layer it on the center of the table runner.

What Supplies Do I Need to Crochet a Table Runner?
- 770 (1045) Yards of Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn – I used WeCrochet Dishie Yarn in the Swan colorway
- H8/5mm Crochet Hook for Body
- G6/4.25mm Crochet Hook for Border
- Tapestry Needle
- Optional, Jewelry Pliers
Yarn Alternatives: Lily Sugar n Cream, Red Heart Smoothie, Crafters Secret Cotton
Dishie Yarn is a touch thinner than Lily Sugar n Cream – you may need to go down a hook size with this yarn if it’s your choice, though gauge is not essential in this project if the finished size isn’t.
I am using cotton because it’s a great durable, sturdy, absorbent fiber, but really, you can use any yarn to create this runner. Only thing I will stress is the purpose of your runner. As decoration, any yarn will work just fine. If you will be using this on a table that you will be eating and drinking on too, I recommend cotton or wool with no synthetic yarn (acrylic, polyamide, nylon…) within it. Why? Synthetic’s could melt if something hot were placed on top of, and don’t hold up as well to moisture.
If you want to try a wool, I really love WeCrochet Swish.
I usually recommend jewelry pliers to use to help weave in ends, as cotton yarn can be quite tough on the fingers when weaving in with just fingers and a tapestry needle. Dishie Yarn is really smooth, and easy to weave the yarn in and out of.
How Long Does it Take to Crochet a Table Runner?
Just over 13.5 hours
15.25″ Wide by 44.88″ (or 44 7/8″) [60.38″ (60 3/8″) Tall]
Gauge, Not Essential; With H8/5mm Crochet Hook:
(chain 1 space + single crochet) * 10 = 4″ wide; 18 Rows = 4.13″ (or 4 1/8″) tall
Abbreviations (US Terms):
- SC – Single Crochet (Photo Tutorial)
- Rev SC – Reverse Single Crochet
Beginning chain 1 does not count as a stitch.
Each single crochet and each chain are considered a stitch. In the moss stitch pattern, you are working a two row repeat that staggers the stitches with single crochets worked over the previous rows chain 1 spaces, and vice versa.
The chain multiple is any even number. After you work row 1, you’ll end up with an odd number of stitches. To vary the height, just make sure to end on an even number of rows so the border will still work out evenly.
