Happy 1st YouTube anniversary!
I’m so happy to have made this milestone of 1st year on YouTube, and getting 5k supporters to join me on my channel along the way. Thank you so much, all friends and subscribers! You are such a great inspiration to me, always giving me ideas of what to make next and supporting with your heartwarming feedback! Shout out to all of you! Let’s keep making the fun crochet projects together!
To celebrate the occasion I decided to make the 2nd edition of my very first project, Venetian square. It’s one of my absolute favorite and I while I can’t say who the original designer is (I wish I could for coming up with this gorgeous yet simple pattern), I relied on my crocheting experience to come up with the appropriate number of stitches to crochet the Venetian square.
I dedicate this light pink Venetian table runner to the beautiful city of Venice which I have been lucky to visit twice, first in 1996 and second in 2010. And especially to the famous marble pink Palazzo Ducale that has obviously been the inspiration for this crochet design.

WRITTEN PATTERN OF VENETIAN SQUARE
Here is the written pattern of Venetian square for you to make your own vintage table runner.
I use crochet thread size 10 and crochet hook 1.5 mm. My square measures about 3 inches on each side.
My Amazon picks:
Abbreviations: ch = chain dc = double crochet sc = single crochet sk = skip sl st = slip stitch
Row 1 – ch 20, dc in 8th ch from hook, (ch 2, skip 2 ch, dc 1 in next ch) 4 times.
Row 2 – ch 5 and turn, dc 1 in next dc, (ch 2, dc 1 in next dc) 4 times.
Rows 3-5 repeat row 2
Row 6 – turn the square sideways and start working on the side: (sc 3 in ch2-space, sc 1 in next column) 3 times, ch 9, turn, sk 2 sc and slip st in next sc, turn again, sc 3 into 9ch-loop, (ch 3 and sl st in sc below) this is picot, (sc 2 more in 9ch-loop, make next picot) 4 times – total 5 picots, sc 3 more in loop, now continue on the side of square: sc 2 in next space and sc 1 in column, sc 5 in corner space.
Row 6 – continue on second side of square: (sc 1 in next column, sc 2 in next space) twice, sc 1 in next column (now 3 little side squares are worked), continue with 9ch-loop pattern: ch 9, turn, sk 2 sc and slip st in next sc, turn again, sc 3 into 9ch-loop, (ch 3 and sl st in sc below) picot, (sc 2 more in 9ch-loop, make next picot) 4 times – total 5 picots, sc 3 more in loop, now continue on the side of square: sc 2 in next space and sc 1 in column, sc 5 in corner space.
Repeat same for 3rd and 4th side of square. In the last corner sc 2 more and sl st in 1st sc.
Row 7 – ch 7 and sl st in 2nd picot on 9ch-loop, ch 9 and sl st in 4th picot on the loop, ch 7 and sl in 3rd sc of the corner; repeat the same for other corners.
Row 8 – sc 3 in ch7-space and make 3ch-picot, sc 2 in same space and make 2nd picot, sc 3 more in same space, next sc 3 in ch9-space and make 1st picot, (sc 2 in same space, make picot) twice, sc 3 more in same space = this is the corner. Continue the same way: sc3 + picot + sc2 + picot + sc 3 in ch7-space and sc3 + picot + sc2 + picot + sc2 + picot + sc 3 in ch9-space. Slip st in 1st sc and fasten off.
