How many times do we really wear the same shawl? What do we do with it in between? We use it as a table runner!
This versatile pattern is easily lengthened or widened. Make a skinny scarf in a single evening. Make a wider shawl. Make a table runner to custom fit that bureau in your bedroom.
Of all the bobbin laces, torchon, with its diamond-shaped background net, fans and trails, is the easiest to transform into crochet. This design is modeled after the historical torchon bobbin lace.
Sizes Available: You can adjust the width of this pattern by adding panels which are continuously crocheted. No seaming.
The pattern gives instructions for adjusting the length.

I have been crocheting for 40 years. It is a craft that I want to promote and encourage in everyone that loves to create. I especially like to bring the antique patterns and techniques forward in time and make them accessible to new crocheters.
