Crochet Lace Motifs Tablecloth, My First Ever Tablecloth Design, Crochet Pattern and Video Tutorial

Happy Summer! I hope you are enjoying it! I certainly am!

After a year and a half of lockdowns, social distancing and isolations, it feels so wonderful to be out and about again! I really enjoy going on day trips exploring my state!

Last month I visited Lincoln, a small town in Northern California. Walking downtown, I noticed this stunning, vintage, crochet tablecloth outside of a small business! 

I snapped a picture, which I later shared on the community tab of my Youtube channel! 

And so many people loved it and encouraged me to create a similar one! 

And here is the tablecloth of my own! Yes, yes, I know, it's not as gorgeous as the one above, but considering that it's my first attempt ever at designing a tablecloth, I think it's not that bad! 

I wanted to keep it simple because like I said, it's my first attempt, and I didn't want to take forever to make it or to get too overwhelmed!

Instead of using crochet thread, I used 100% mercerized cotton yarn (category 3). Specifically I used Patons Grace. To make a five by five motifs tablecloth (about 40 by 40 inches), 7 skeins of yarn needed. 

Buy this yarn of Amazon (affiliate link)

I worked with a hook size F (3.75 mm)

Each motif is quite simple and has only five rounds. The motifs are joined together in the fifth round. Then in the space between the joined motifs I added fill-in lace. 

Do you see the mistake I made in my tablecloth in the picture bellow? When I noticed it, it was way too late to fix it! Oh well! 

 I wrote a detailed pattern for this tablecloth and I filmed a video tutorial as well!

The written pattern is available in my Etsy and Ravelry shops! 

Happy summer and happy crocheting! 


  1. Yes, I agree that the tablecloth is gorgeous. You do such beautiful crochet projects!
