Motif Tablecloth

(Crochet)

The crochet tablecloth for my dinner table is finally finished…
Finalmente el mantel en ganchillo para mi comedor está terminado…










This project started as a table runner, but grew into a full table cloth.  It is made with fine cotton, in double thread, hook 3.5 mm.  I used a motif by Pierrot (Gosyo Co.), which I found in Ravelry: 665mf Cotton Neat Motif
I made the centers in Autumn colors, and the last row in cream, which gives it a bit of a polka-dot effect.  The border is improvised. It has become a statement piece in my dining room, and I love it.  

Al principio, comencé este proyecto como un centro de mesa, pero me gustó tanto que decidí hacer un mantel entero.  Utilicé un algodón fino (doble hilo) y un gancho de 3.5 mm.  La aplicación que utilicé es de un sitio japonés, Pierrot Gosyo, cuyo enlace se encuentra en Ravelry: 665mf Cotton Neat Motif. 
Para el centro de las aplicaciones utilicé colores otoñales, y todo el fondo lo hice en color crema.  El borde lo improvisé.  El mantel resultó muy vistoso, y me gusta mucho como se luce en mi comedor.

      I am really trying to make one of my own. I don't understand the joining as you go part. After you finished a row, did you go along and do the cream border, before you began adding the next row of motifs? I would appreciate any help you could offer. Thanks in advance. RAHollar@comcast.net

    3. I made all the colored parts first. Then I joined them in cream on the last row. You can make them one by one, but I joined them using a continous joiniung method. I basically adapted the method shared by Patchwork. Check it out here:

    1. Gracias, Cristina. La unión no es tan difícil. Es similar que la unión de cuadros granny, pero más calados.

  29. It's awesome ....now how can we make one? Would you please make a tutorial on how to join all the motifs please. I'm sure I'm not the only one that would love a tablecloth as gorgeous as your one. Thanks you for sharing your creativity.

    1. Thanks, Ella :-) You can find the link to the motif in Raverly (check the link in blue). As for a tutorial, I think I'd have to make a video, for it would be difficult to explain in text (or even photos). Let me think about it...
