One color or more?
One of the best things about making a Granny Rectangle Table Runner is that you have so many options when it comes to colors.
You can choose to go with a monochromatic look, using just one color for the entire runner. This can create a sleek and modern feel, perfect for a minimalist or contemporary home.
On the other hand, if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, you can choose two contrasting colors that really pop. This will give your table runner a bold and playful look, perfect for adding some fun to your dining room.
If you’re having trouble deciding on which colors to use, take a cue from your existing home decor. Consider the colors of your walls, furniture, and other accents in the room.
You can either choose colors that complement these existing elements or go for something that contrasts in a way that really stands out.
And remember, don’t be afraid to have some fun with it!

On with the Instructions!
- This pattern consists of one rectangle worked in rounds
- Ch3 does counts as st at beginning of the row
- This pattern calls for multiples of 3 +3
- You can work this pattern with one color or multiple as you wish. I used two colors
- You can adjust the length by adding multiples of 3 to the foundation chain to suit your style and preference
- This pattern can also be used as Placemats
For this pattern rectangle, Please decide if and when to change colors.
I used the cream shade in the first 3 rounds and changed to the navy color for the rest.
Row 1: Dc2 in 4th Ch from hook( forms 1st GRst), Ch1, Skip 2 Ch, GRst in next, skip 2 ch, Grst in next, skip 2 Ch, continue across to end, Dc3 in last st, Ch2, Dc3 in same st, Ch2, Dc3 again in same st, (this forms the rectangle corner), Ch1, now we continue on the same row on the opposite side, GRst in next GRst from the prev row on the opposite side, GRst in next GRst, continue to next corner, skip 2, Dc3 in last Ch (1st Dc3), Ch2, Dc3 in the same spot, Ch2, and Slst to 1st Ch3 from the beginning. (2 corners + 6 X 2 Dc3 clusters)
Now you should have a closed rectangle.
Round 2: Sl st 3 to the near Ch1 space, Ch3 (counts as 1st st), Dc2, Ch1,GRst in next Ch1 space, GRst in next and continue until reach next corner, (Dc3+Ch2+Dc3) in next Ch2 space, Ch1, (Dc3+Ch2+Dc3) in next Ch2 space, Ch1, GRst in next ch1 space and across, finish Slst to 1st Ch1 from the beginning. ( 4 corners + 7 X 2 Dc3 clusters)
Round 3: Sl st 3 to the near Ch1 space, Ch3 (counts as 1st st), Dc2, Ch1, GRst in next Ch1 space, GRst in next and continue until reach next corner, (Dc3+Ch2+Dc3) in next Ch2 space, Ch1, (Dc3+Ch2+Dc3) in next Ch2 space, Ch1, GRst in next ch1 space and across, finish Slst to 1st Ch1 from the beginning. ( 4 corners + 1 Dc3 cluster in between + 8 X 2 Dc3 clusters)
Here I changed colors, so fasten up the yarn and cut.
Rounds 4-9: Introduce new color in a corner Ch3 (counts as 1st st), Dc2 + Ch2 + Dc3 in same Ch2 corner, Ch1, Grst in next Ch1 space, GRst in next and continue until reach next corner, Dc3+Ch2+Dc3 in next Ch2 space, Ch1, GRst in next, and across to next corner, Dc3+Ch2+Dc3 in next Ch2 space, Ch1, GRst in next Ch1 space and across, to next and corner, repeat until you finish the round , finish Slst to 1st Ch1 from the beginning.
If you wish to make a larger piece continue repeating rounds
Round10: Ch3 (counts as 1st st, Dc1 in next 2 Dc from prev round, Dc1 in Ch1 space, *[Dc1 in next 3 dc from prev round, Dc1 in Ch1 space]* repeat from * to* to corner, (Dc3+Ch2+Dc3) , continue *to* to next corner and repeat to end of the round, Slst to 1st Ch1 from the beginning
Round 11 (Final Round): Ch1, Sc1 in 1st st, Sc1 in next st and across to the corner, (Sc1+Ch2+Sc1) in the corner, continue Sc1 in every st to next corner and repeat to end of the round, Slst to 1st Ch1 from the beginning
Cut yarn and weave in ends, I suggest to hand-wash in room temperature water with fabric soap the item and block it to straighten and have a perfect rectangle.
