NOTES
1.
Runner is made from 5 rectangle Blocks that are seamed together. Creating individual Blocks adds design interest to the Runner, while using only simply crochet stitches.
2. Our pattern provides the opportunity for your own design input with your choice of stitches in each Block.
3. Once border is crocheted, embroidered accents can be added.
4. Yarn amounts are sufficient to make additional Blocks should you wish to make a larger Runner.

FIRST BLOCK

Instructions are for one rectangle Block. Make 4 more Blocks for a 10" x 35" Runner.
