Heart Table Runner

Valentines Day is just around the corner and, while most of us don’t decorate all that much, why not whip up a pretty table runner for the occasion?  I found this graph the other day while I was wandering around on pinterest.  It’s designed to be a bookmark, but I thought with a few adjustments it would be a nice table runner.  There aren’t many written directions with the graph, and I made a few changes to make it a table runner, so I am posting it here as a written pattern.

My runner measures 30″ long and 8″ wide.

100 grams of cotton or cotton blend worsted weight yarn {I used (2) balls of Classic Elite Yarns Summer Set- 50 gr/95 yards each}
J/6mm hook

Stitches used
Chain (ch)
Slip Stitch (sl st)
Single Crochet (sc)
Double Crochet (dc)
Foundation Double Crochet (fdc)
