  • 5.0 mm “H” crochet hook

  • Yarn of your choice (I used Lily Sugar ‘n Creme from Yarnspirations in “Psychedelic”)

  • Large metal washers

  • Tapestry Needle

  • Scissors


(Depends on the size washer you have)

  • 2 inches wide

Abbreviations and Tutorial Links:


Tie a knot onto a washer.

Round 1: Ch 1, then work a series of single crochets into the center of the washer, sliding stitches over until no metal is exposed in between stitches. Continue around the entire washer until it is completely covered. See below for several ways to hang your weights.

4 ways to attach your weights to the tablecloth (both permanent and temporary):

  • Sew the washer to each corner edge or on the back of each corner (permanent)
  • Poke a small hole in the tablecloth then work a slip stitch into the tablecloth before fastening off (permanent)
  • Clip weights onto tablecloth with binder clips, chip clips, or curtain hook clips (temporary)
  • Hot glue weights onto each corner…use with caution on a vinyl tablecloth, may melt it! (permanent)
