Speed Crochet

I've outdone myself this time. Last week, after returning from a LRP event, I decided to attempt to make a tablecloth in under 4 weeks. For an 8' round table. Using filet crochet. Crazy, I know.

But, somehow, I've pulled it off.

Ok, so I'm cheating a bit. I've crocheted the centrepiece, which is about a foot, foot and a half across. I plan to sew it to the centre of a large red tablecloth I've found on eBay, as the prospect of crocheting an entire tablecloth in this fashion is not an appealing one!

I'm hoping the cloth will arrive in the next few days, so I can sew it this weekend while I've got the house to myself.


  1. Why yes, you have lost your sanity, why do you ask?

    It's lovely and makes me wish I could crochet worth a crap...sadly, I love knitting too much :)

  2. Hiyya Tink! This looks totally bada**! It's so awesome how it came out. So who cares if you're not doing the whole runner like this. A food of this medallion is a terrific accomplishment.

    I seen your instagram with this, and remembering that your table cloth looked massive compared to this piece of crochet

  4. That is really fantastic! I saw it on IG too and wondered if you would be attempting more - the cloth looked enormous!

  5. Crazy! But if anyone could pull off this timeline, it is you! Very nicely done!
