Give Thanks Crochet Table Runner

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so I decided to finally make a crochet table runner. I've wanted to make one for a while, and I thought it would be the perfect project for the October Pinterest Challenge! The purpose of the Pinterest Challenge is to motivate us to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month's challenge is all about Thanksgiving projects and recipes. The pin I chose was of a Crochet Thanksgiving Table Runner by one of my favorite crochet designers, Sarah at Repeat Crafter Me.

I crocheted the main body of the table runner with the Vanna's Choice Oatmeal yarn. I crocheted the letters with the Vanna's Choice Taupe yarn. I used my favorite size G (4mm) crochet hook. This is a corner to corner (c2c) crochet pattern. If you're not familiar with c2c, there are several tutorials on YouTube. It's a really fun stitch.

GIVE THANKS

After crocheting the main body of the table runner, I followed the pattern instructions and crocheted two triangles for the ends of the table runner. 

I used a yarn needle to sew the triangles onto each end of the table runner.

After both triangles were sewn onto the ends of the table runner, I added the border using the Impeccable Camo Tweed yarn.

I crocheted leaves with Vanna's Choice MustardVanna's Choice Honey, and Vanna's Choice Brick. I made two in each color.

I attached the leaves to the ends of the table runner.

I look forward to using this table runner to decorate my dining room table, which is currently in my garage. I've spent the last couple weeks giving it a makeover. I painted the chairs and the legs of the table, and I stained the table top. This morning I sprayed it with polyurethane, so now I just have to wait for it to dry. But it will be ready for our first Thanksgiving in our new home. Yay! 

Thanks for checking out my version of this Thanksgiving Table Runner. 
Now, let's see what the other hosts have created.⇓
