Valley Yarns #90 Holiday Runners PDF
The Holiday Runners are a special and beautiful addition to any table. Celebrate the holidays and share with friends and family by weaving something unique for the occasion. These festive runners will add a bit of sparkle and joy to the shared feasts and are quick and easy to weave on 4 shafts. And in keeping with the holiday season, we wrote the draft with a long enough warp to weave two sets, so you can keep one for your home and gift one to a friend.
