Moss Stitch Table Runner

Make a lovely table runner for spring. This table runner is made using the crochet moss stitch (sc and ch). The moss stitch together with a thicker cotton yarn gives a great texture. I have used the yarn Reko Cotton from Järbo Garn for this project.
Crocheting moss stitches is pretty easy after a while, so this is a perfect project for anyone who enjoys crocheting in front of the tv 🙂

The yarn used in this pattern was sponsored by Järbo Garn .



Yarn: Reko Cotton (100% recycled cotton)
For this project I had 9 balls from the start ( 3 nature (24201), 2 black (24202), 1 Beige (24206), 1 Lagoon Green (24212), 1 Yellow (24218), 1 Light grey (24204).
I’ve finished approximately 7-8 balls for the whole table runner.

Hook: 4,0 mm
Scissors and a needle for fastening ends.

Size: My table runner is about 35 cm wide and 85 cm long. You can easily make it bigger by adding more rows or by adding more stitches to the starting chain.


st – stitch
ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch

sc – single crochet
ch-1 – chain with 1 stitch


Start by making 82 ch. Do not crochet to tight on the starting chain to prevent your work from curling later on.

Round 1:
Start in 3:rd chain from hook. *1 sc, ch 1, skip 1 st*, repeat * -* until you have made 1 sc in the last ch. Turn your work.

Round 2  and forward:
Ch 2. *Make 1 sc in next ch-1, ch 1*, repeat * -* until you have made 1 sc in the last ch. Turn your work.

Continue until you are happy with the length of your table runner. Fasten off and weave in the ends!

Color change:
Fasten the new color with a sl st in the last sc on last round when changing color.  Continue as before by first ch 2, 1 sc in next ch-1 etc..


It is of course possible to vary the colors and stripe pattern on this table runner. To make parts with thin stripes in 2 colors you need to make each other round with each of the 2 colors. Follow the color code below if you’d want exactly the same colors and stipes as me.

I put a lot of time into my patterns. If you use my pattern and share images on social media I would appreciate if you would link back or tag your images with #intheyarngarden . That also makes it easier for me to see your work, which I’d love to see 🙂

Happy crocheting!

  1. Hi there!
    I am looking to make this beautiful table runner but I can’t purchase the same brand of yarn you suggested. Is there another brand you recommend? Also, I want to be sure I’m purchasing the right amount. Do you know what the weight of the skein you used was? Thank you in advance! 🙂

    1. Hi! You can read the details about the yarn I used here:

      It’s an aran weight cotton yarn. I believe that any Aran weight cotton yarn is fine to use.


      1. Thank you!! 😁
