Today we are going to weave one of the crochet classics, rectangular crochet folders that are perfect for endless uses, you can use them as placemats, as tablecloths, as decoration on the back of the chair, if it is made of a thick material you can use it as a mat.
These rectangular crochet doilies are perfect to use as tablecloths for your table or as a crochet table runner, they are also perfect to use on a small coffee table or a bureau, so you can decorate every corner of your home with your crochet fabrics .
RECTANGULAR CROCHET FOLDERS The first of these crochet folders is knitted in two parts, the first is a simple rectangle of chain stitches and double crochets and the rest is knitted around this rectangle, that is, it is a kind of large and wide border with complex and elaborate motifs.
The materials that we are going to use are yarn or thin wool so that each motif looks well formed and clear. Also, we will need a number 6 or 8 hook to make the fabric thin.
For the first part we are going to work 100 chain stitches, then we are going to work three more chains to gain height and go to the next row, then we are going to work a row of only double crochets, for the second row we are going to work 4 double crochets, then 3 chain stitches, until the end of the row, in the next one we knit 3 double crochets on the previous double crochets.
Then we are going to knit 3 chain stitches and join them in the second chain stitch of the previous row, then we knit 3 chains and we knit another 3 double crochets and repeat, we are going to knit 1 row in total, repeating the first one with only double crochets, the second of 4 double crochets and 3 chains and the third of 3 double crochets and 6 chains, in such a way that round 13, the last one, you knit only double crochets. At the end you need to weave around arches of 5 chains each threaded every 4 stitches or on each round.
To crochet the entire edge of these rectangular crochet folders, it is better that you look at the first image with the pineapple patterns above.
RECTANGULAR CROCHET FOLDERS The following pattern of rectangular crochet folders is a little more complicated than the previous one but the result is impressive and well worth it, so if you are interested and you already have some practice you can weave this folder that measures 48 cm in length. long by 14 cm wide, perfect to use as a table runner.
