Thanksgiving Patterns

Want to set a spectacular table for Thanksgiving this year? If so, it’s time to whip up some fabulous table settings and table linens.

For an extra special touch, we suggest using crocheted edgings to trim your cloth napkins; then you can place each napkin inside a handcrafted napkin ring, or use an interesting napkin fold to display it to its best advantage.

Placemats make beautiful additions to your Thanksgiving table settings, and they’re also practical; they can keep your table and / or tablecloth from getting damaged by spills, scratches or other mishaps.

Coasters are also helpful additions to the Thanksgiving table, and also for coffee tables and end tables in use wherever your family is hanging out, or entertaining guests.

So there you have it: bunches of suggestions for fall patterns to knit and crochet. I hope you’ve enjoyed this roundup, and that you found a new project to get started on — or some new patterns to add to your pattern stash.
