Floral Table Runner is easy to make using lace star flower stitch. The simple pattern consisting of chains, single crochet and triple crochet stitches creates beautiful star-shaped flower motives. Chained fringe added to each end completes the lacy design, making it the perfect centerpiece for the long dining table.
The table runner definitely needs blocking after you finish it. I usually make the the piece wet, stretch it out on blocking mats and attach it with pins. I also spray some starch to give it extra firm shape. Let it dry completely before removing the pins.
