Knitting tablecloth

Napkins and tablecloths can be done not only crochet. Knitting needles have been working with such products for quite some time. So many beautiful schemes for performing these models are stored on the Internet. Now for each master and beginner there are two models and schemes for them for knitting needles at once. Very original and thin models according to simple schemes.

Tablecloth and knitting needles

Tablecloths are most often made of thin threads. But this thread should also be suitable for the hook. Not everyone will make a tablecloth made of mohair, but even from it, a standing product can certainly be obtained. The most common option for making a tablecloth is cotton, and this thread can be of different thicknesses.

As for the color, first white, and then there are other colors for the tablecloth. Bright models look very unusual and they will definitely decorate the interior. But you should not reject pastel colors. Soft pink and pale yellow remain very popular.

Circular knitting needles

Knitting needles for making tablecloths are usually used in different models. Moreover, models can change throughout the work. This, of course, is hosiery for the beginning of the product and circular for the big circle.

Knitting needles

But tablecloths of motifs can even be done with just short knitting needles. The number of needles must necessarily correspond to the thickness of the thread and this is no less important rule on the way to a beautiful product.

Thin hook for tying tablecloths

We knit a sample

Any product has its own dimensions and helps to make a small-sized product that is exact in size. It is performed according to the pattern of the main part.

Then, simply using a ruler, measure the density of the knitting (how many elements per 10 cm in a row, and how many rows in such 10 cm). Based on these data, it will not be difficult to calculate the dimensions for the whole work.

How to knit a beautiful tablecloth with knitting needles?

All stages of the implementation of the tablecloth will depend on the model itself. For example, to perform a tablecloth based on motives, you will need to start work with the implementation of motives. Make as many units as required by the size of the required product. In another case, the tablecloth is round or oval, and they already have a beginning in the center and a gradual expansion.

It is very unusual to do work with knitting needles in a circle. Usually this performs a hook. But there will be general principles for all tablecloths - these are the first two stages. The first is to measure how much cm is needed for the desired product. The second stage is the density of the knitting, and it is determined by the sample. And then the work itself.

Tablecloth square of motives

A delicate and very thin model of a tablecloth made of small square motifs . Made by simple schemes with charming leaves. The motive itself does not take much time. The result is a cute model.

To work, you will need:

  • thin cotton yarn;
  • knitting needles on the thickness of the thread.


Measure the table and make an increase on the edges. It is very important to observe the rule of good tone and add no more than 20 cm to each edge. That is, add no more than 40 for the width and add no more than 40 for the length. Fix the measurements, since then the calculations begin again.


Perform one motive according to the specified scheme and calculate its length and width. Next, using mathematical calculations to determine how many motives will need to be made for the required square tablecloth. If the pillar is rectangular in shape, then the tablecloth is best done in a rectangular shape. To do this, use more motives for the length of the product.


To fulfill the motive, it is necessary to start work from the central part of the motive. It is very important to understand that the motive has 4 rapports in its foundation. These are 4 petals of a beautiful pattern. The first row has just facial loops. Then, the yarn and crossed loops are joined to expand. In order for the knitting to take the form of a square, and not to become a dimensionless bag, it will be necessary from the 7th row to make at the same time additions with the usual pair of yarn over 2 points of each edge of the rapport and 3 loops of the front surface together in the center.

After the middle of each leaf, you need to make a lot of crochets and at the same time loops together, so you will get a charming canvas with holes. On this pattern, the front loops of the sheet itself will be even more clearly visible. The last rows of one motive include facial smoothness and nakida.

Important! The chain will help to make the motive complete, but it will only help the hook of the right size and select it only by the thickness of the thread. This is an ordinary chain of air loops. Further, it is useful for connecting ready-made motives to each other.


Knit the required number of motives and you can proceed to the last stage - this is the assembly. Sew parts in the chain stitches. And so this unusual and very beautiful tablecloth is made. Additionally, you can dry it correctly so that it holds its shape for a long time. Just wet and spread out on the surface, spreading the threads. Iron after drying, but be sure to use a not too hot mode and a gauze napkin. If desired, the product can be starched and it will hold its shape for a long time.

Pink round tablecloth

Every housewife wants to have such a tablecloth in her home. Only three schemes are used here. Upon completion of the last (third scheme), all work will be completed.

To work, use:

  • pure cotton pink yarn;
  • knitting needles along the thickness of the thread;
  • hook for tying.

Scheme 1 for a round tablecloth


Measure your round table, for this, determine its diameter. For the free edge, you can add no more than 20 cm, so the tablecloth will look beautiful. But for more solemn occasions it is necessary to select larger sizes, and for this the increase can even be up to the floor.


Using any of the presented schemes, knit a small square, and calculate the density of knitting for it. Then determine what sizes are suitable for the table.

Scheme 2 for a round tablecloth


A tablecloth of 8 loops begins. Further knitting continues in a circle. Initially, you can use just stocking knitting needles. Since the circles will be small, knitting them in circles here will be simply inconvenient. Then, with an increase in the number of loops, thanks to special double crochets, circular knitting needles can also be used. In total, 250 rows are in operation. The simplest loops are used. These are crochets, front loops and loops knitted together, in some places there are also crossed loops. First knit rapports according to the first scheme, then go to the second with the expansion of circles and the last third scheme starts from 215 rows.

Scheme 3 for a round tablecloth


Many craftsmen have mastered the knitting needles so much that they can easily tie only with the help of knitting needles. But it will be faster to do this with the usual hook and the simplest strapping - this is a chain of air loops. To do this, use 8 air loops and connecting posts between them. So knit around the edge of the resulting product. Just close the last loop and hide the thread. The pink and cutest tablecloth that can only be on the table is ready.

A tablecloth always represents a large product, and it is more difficult to knit than other things. But a beautiful model is worth it, because for it there are good and clear schemes.
