A table runner for the holidays? Which holiday? With this table runner you can change the colors for any holiday of your choice, or just to match your décor.

  1. Lovely but can’t print the pattern without some blank ad block obscuring much of the pattern. Please adjust or why even provide the pattern?

  2. Is it straightforward to make a small squarish version, casting on the minimum number of stitches? Four knitted stitches plus slip the fifth at the beginning of each right side row and ending with slip one, knit the remaining four The wrong sides should be similar and easy to see and work out. The patterning stitches in brackets (…) seem straightforward.
    Thank you.
