So make it an occasion everyone will remember with a brand new table runner! A table runner acts to set the scene for the whole room and brings a wonderful sense of elegance and tradition to any event. Add accessories, flowers and decorations to match your colour theme and you will have the perfect setting for the day.
There are lots of ways to use table runners but they work especially well with wooden tables because they bring out the beauty of the wood. You can also drape them over the top of a simple tablecloth for a stunning effect or use a narrow runner on your favourite sideboard.
This new table runner shows off a stunning stitch from our Reversible Knitting Stitches book. The stitch is called Elongated Diamonds, and features embossed diamond patterns set between garter stitch ridges. The pattern really catches the light and gives a wonderful sense of proportion to a table setting – perfect for all those winter festivities coming very soon!
The runner is worked in Knit Picks Cotlin which is a crisp cotton/linen mixture, but if you can't get hold of that then Rowan's Creative Linen would be a good alternative.
I’ll be back next time with a very different idea for your holiday festivities. Find out more by clicking the link below to go to the next blogpost.
Until then – Happy Knitting!
