GAUGE: When working with a size 6 steel hook, 18 dcs and 10 rows = 2 inches. Slight variations in gauge will change the finished size a bit.

Techniques/stitches used: Refer to Runner Chart and Runner Key.

Reading chart: The first row begins with ch 3, turn and ends with the last dc in the top of the turning ch of previous row.

The first vertical line of the chart represents the ch 3, turn. All boxes represent three sts, which are explained on the stitch key on pullout page 35 and in the instructions. Keep in mind that most of the vertical lines on the chart represent a dc and the horizontal lines of the empty boxes represent ch 2. Some rows are written out to help explain the instructions.

First ch-3 of a row counts as first dc.

When the chart indents, ch 1, turn, sl st in first 3 sts of the previous row, ch 3 for first dc of new row.

DIRECTIONS: Before you begin, refer to gauge, techniques/stitches used, etc.

The runner is crocheted from the center out to the ends.
