Peach Tree Street Table Runner

Untitled

Remember my Peach Tree Street Experiment in acrylic yarn?  Well, I had actually already made a table runner with the same pattern in size 10 thread for a wedding gift!  I will warn you now that there may be an excessive amount of pictures in this post as I loved how it came out!

I found the Peach Tree Street pattern in the Star Book No. 224, Tablecloths & Bedspreads.  Using size 10 thread, and a vintage No. 9 steel hook, I made a table runner consisting of 16 of the larger motifs, and 13 of the joining motifs.

The large motif is about 6 inches in diameter...

And it took me about 1.5 hours to make each large motif....

A little more dramatic in black and white, no?

I just love the texture of the popcorn stitches!

I can't even begin to imagine making an entire bedspread...  Someday I may just have to do it!!

Anyways, I really loved this pattern!  I've looked around online and I can't find it to give you guys the link...  Maybe if I do more research and am more confident that it is in the public domain, maybe I could share it with you?!

Have a great weekend my friends!!

  2. What an intricate looking stitch and it has a very traditional vintage look to it. You certainly give yourself crochet challenges, but I can tell that you love that!
