How to craft your table cloth manually?
To craft a tablecloth, you will need suitable fabric, gauge structure, and directions. You'll need gauge start at 5 inches diameter or.
1- To start, use the 5" gauge to creat large motifs. Start by adding 8 chain stetches to meet with a slipstitch. Form the sphere, move to round one and continue through to reach round eight, until you come to the smaller motif.
2- Stich five chains to meet with your double crochet and the chains you created. In your ring, double crochet and chain stitch two rows working up to eleven stitches/doubles and slipstitch into the third chain at the start of your first chain and leave three spaces as you work to round two.
3- Add a slipstitch to start another space.
4- Stetch the motifs into the edges of the cloth at equal spaces "Divide by 8"
