So often holiday themed table items are either cutesy or kitchee. This one is a genuine exception. Do get this pattern directly from the Red Heart site as the download contains more photos than the above post. You cant see it in the project photo on here, but the border looks like it is some sort of basketweave pattern. I love the muted autumn colors, but this would look just as nice with Spring colors and straw colored border.

This is perfect. Not only can I make a table runner, and I love table runners instead of a tablecloth. I want to make matching place mats and maybe coasters. It would make a wonderful gift too. I am adding this to my Christmas box in the closet. I love to ave a bunch of gifts made ahead.

I love to work projects that consist of motifs. I call them my take along projects. I also adore that this autumn tones table runner has been worked with Aunt Lydia's Classic Crochet Thread, my favorite medium to work with.
