Tarnation Kitchen Runner Rug

Here's a runner-sized variation on the Tarnation Rectangle Rug pattern.  It's a great size for a hallway, RV floor, or in front of the sink in your kitchen.  I like to use a runner long-ways in front of a back door or door into the garage, as a long walk-off mat.

The runner measures 75 inches long and 21 inches wide.  This rug used tarn made from 14 t-shirts in a variety of sizes (some very large, some small).

Here are the modifications to the original free pattern, to get a runner like this:

1. Chain 153 for the foundation or base chain.

2. Use standard single-crochet (U.S. terms).

  1. I would love to do this but at my age I would be afraid of tripping on it. Very pretty and just my style.

  2. Lovely runner - thanks for the alteration and links :)
