Fall is such a fun time to decorate your home, and what better way with a trendy table runner?! The Fall Skies & Apple Pies design catches the essence of fall with the current yarn color trends.
Have you noticed the push for teal in fall décor? I have and I’m here for it. It’s a nice pop of color that pairs well with orange. But if you want traditional colors to match your curated home décor, feel free to substitute. The best part of crocheting is being able to customize to your liking. So go for it!
And if you are about the details like I am, adding tassels on each corner just tops it off. I made mine in orange to add another pop of a fall color, but get creative and you can even use two colors. So many variations can be created from one pattern.
If this is your first time doing colorwork, come on over to the Ways to Colorwork in Crochet ( https://brianakdesigns.com/waystocolorworkincrochet/ ) for some tips and tools that can help. The Fall Skies & Apple Pies Table Runner uses the intarsia method and your colors can be placed on bobbins to make it easier to create.
And of course, I’m here to help! I just know once you get addicted to colorwork you will love it like I do. I have lots more patterns to inspire you. Cheers!
ABOUT OUR DESIGNER
I grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and I love the peace that comes from all things green and outdoorsy. For someone motivated by peace, like me, crochet is a great hobby. You can chill out, crochet for a few hours, and escape the busy rush of the day to day. That’s an escape that I definitely need as a working mom with 4 young kids!
Reading, playing piano, rowing, and biking are a few of my favorite things, and I’m also a science and math aficionado. I have a bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience from Smith College and finished two years of graduate school at UNCChapel Hill before leaving the world of academia to raise my family.

For the colorwork instructions, Color A/White will be abbreviated as (A), Color B/Orange as (B), Color C/Blue as (C), Color D/Brown as (D), and Color E/Green as (E). All stitches will be worked in single crochet. Example: (B) x 9 = with Color B sc the next 9 stitches

There is no need to chain 1 at the beginning of each row. Without the chain 1 you will have straighter edges. Use a stitch marker to keep track of the first stitch in the row.
