Spring Table Runner and Place Settings

Easter

There can be nothing more spring-like than fresh green grass and by using a green eyelash yarn you can create a mini lawn to run down the middle of your spring or Easter table. Dotted with primroses, which are made and sewn on separately, it could even make you believe you are having the first picnic of the year!

Making up and finishing

Sew in any ends.

Use the soluble colour pencils to colour the centre of each primrose a darker shade.

Lay the runner on a flat surface, RS facing up, and position 22 assorted flowers, 13 large leaves and 14 small leaves where you want them to be. Hold them in place with safety pins. Stitch the decoration onto the runner with a needle and thread, or use a hot glue gun.

Decorate each place setting with one primrose, one small leaf and one large leaf in the same way.

 

Tip

You could work one of the place settings first to check your tension, since these are the same number of stitches and rows as needed for the tension swatch. The pattern for this is really simple, but it can be quite tricky to see each stitch when working with eyelash yarn. Check your stitch count every few rows and if need be increase/decrease to keep the stitch count correct. You will find that the fluffiness of the yarn is quite forgiving and when completed you will not notice if some rows have a few more or fewer stitches.
