Don the table with this Berry Leaf Table Runner for Christmas this year. The holly design against the white background really makes it stick out in a good way. A little bit of sparkly yarn adds a nice embellishment to an already beautiful piece of homemade Christmas decor. Because it's not just a Christmas decoration, you can keep it up for the entire month of December if you'd like, so that dinner always has a nice addition.

This is such a pretty table runner, but Im actually going to use it on my mantle. Its festive enough to say Christmas, but plain enough that it wont conflict with my other projects and ornaments. Ive tried using fake snow blankets, but they just dont go with my other crocheted items. I love doing something I can pull out year after year, even if I change themes next Christmas.

I can imagine giving this as a present to a lady who lives in an old house with huge wooden dining tables and huge cabinets. This Berry Leaf Table Runner is perfect to give to that lady. I'm sure the lady of the house will appreciate the effort of making this customized table runner that will surely give life and color to a rather quiet and old house that has seen better days.

After a bit of perseverance I got it!

It sure is a pretty runner! Terribly confusing from 'Edging' in the instructions. I've read it ten times and I am a fairly experienced crocheter. One person writes that the corners of the edging have to be sewn together but I don't see it in the instructions. I have not begun the edging yet... just waiting for a lightbulb moment. I would certainly do the edging all around once the main colour is finished, and not in bits and pieces.

This is a beautiful classic design. It really dresses up a holiday table. I have the dishes with the holly Berry design so this would be perfect to use with them. I am also thinking of making matching coasters or better yet, napkin rings. They would be oh so pretty on the plates. Thank you for sharing.

Also, why do you say to purchase 2 of the 1360 Aran w/Gold? I was perfectly able to do all the center with just one ball... Or are we supposed to double-up the Aran w/Gold, doing it with 2 strands, even though the pattern doesn't say it anywhere?

So, I LOVE this Table Runner, BUT... Can I ask why you just didn't do the reds and greens in the round, instead of finishing one side at a time, then sewing the corners together? It just seems much more complicated than doing it in the rounds...

I agree, this turned out great but there should be an easier way to work the edges--so many threads to deal with! I'm not savvy enough to figure it out so if anyone else sees a way to do this, I'd love to know. I also only used one skein of the white.

nice one
