19 sts x 26 rows in 4” (10 cm) in lofty lace pattern


Approx. 12.5” x 48” (66”, 84”, 102”, 120”) [31.75 x 122 (168, 213, 259, 305) cm]


Measuring: I included 5 common lengths, but every table is different. Measure the length of your table. Then decide if you want the runner to fit in the middle of the table with room on the ends for plates. If so, you need your runner to be shorter than your table. But if you want it to drape over the end of the table you will need to lengthen it. Typically, add 12” to your runner to overhang 6” on each end.

Sizing: The lace stitch pattern uses a multiple of 6 +3. If you want to adjust the size of the runner, every additional 6 stitches cast on adds approx. 1.25” (3.2 cm) to the width. Add or remove stitches in groups of 6 to fit your desired width. Each 12-row repeat adds about 1.875” (4.8 cm). Add or remove repeats from the standard lengths listed above to fit your desired measurement. Example: If I need my runner to be 90”, I would use the pattern instructions for the 84” length and work 3 more pattern repeats to get close to the additional 6 inches I need. (3 x 1.875” = 5.6” added)
