Red Heart has many free patterns on their pages. They're starting to come out with Christmas patterns. Some I'd never be interested in, but lacy beautiful crocheted table runners are very interesting.
This particular one is labeled for the Intermediate crocheter, which means it's one where I'd get stuck after the second row.
Isn't it so lovely?
It's called "Holiday or Any Day Table Runner". You could make it in any color, for any season.
Here's where you can find the pattern: http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/holiday-or-any-day-table-runner
