Knit table runner patterns

A kitchen table with a lovely hand made knitted table runner will be the most decorative item in your kitchen. And we went to work finding some beautiful knitted table runners that you will want in your home. Now!

My favorite knitted table runner pattern is the mosaic design.  This is so classy and will show off your strong knitting skills.  I love the colors that are shown in the tutorial, but you could go with any color combination, and this would look dazzling on your table.

If you are looking for something Art-Deco, there is a knitted table runner pattern using a cable design.  It is made with sleek and streamlined stitches that mimic wood grain. The pattern designer used a bamboo and silk blend yarn which added to the Art-Deco feel.

Please check out the other knitted table runner patterns that we have on this page.  You will be pleasantly surprised!

Knit Dish Towel Patterns

We have a plethora of wonderful and unique patterns to create knitted dish towels and dishcloths.  Some are cute and fun, and others are modern designs.

The farmhouse style is very popular right now, and we found two stunning knitted dish towel patterns for you.  One has the look of heirloom kitchen linen and the other is a cozy design for your farmhouse kitchen.  And both are easy enough for beginners!

I would be lost without my dish towels with toppers to hang in convenient spots in my kitchen.  There is always one on the over door handle that I use to quickly dry my hands.  

Make your choice of several knitted dish towel toppers, and you will see what the fuss is all about!

Be sure to take a look at the other knitted dish towels, dish cloth, and tea towel patterns. Also check out our page devoted to knit dish cloths!

Knit Potholder Patterns

Everyone needs potholders in their kitchen, so why not knit a potholder up with our unique knit potholder patterns?

Try the checkered potholder made of worsted wool that is felted after knitting.  Maybe you would prefer the diagonal striped pattern, using your skills with a circular needle.  

There are too many knit potholder patterns to list here, so be sure to browse the links below.  Knit potholders are very charming, decorative, and useful to have in your kitchen.

Other Knit Kitchen Patterns

Mug cozies are so pretty, and they really do keep your hands from burning and your drink warm!  Be sure to look at the free knit mug cozy patterns we have found for you. The seaside jug cover is much like the mug cozies but will protect your pitcher!

How about some clever knitted flower napkin rings?  They have beautiful flowers knitted on them. By using coordinating colors you can make one for each place setting that is special and different from the others.

Those plastic grocery bags must be reused!  What a waste to carry groceries home in them and then toss them in the trash. The knitted plastic grocery bag keeper patterns below are both decorative and very useful.  Save those bags in the pretty and organized knitted designs that you can leave out to decorate your kitchen!

Kitchen scrubbies, gift jar toppers, pie carriers and more are also found below.  If you're looking for free knit placemats, this page has it all!
