Christmas Colors Fingering Yarn

I saw this light yarn in these Christmas colors, and I knew I had to get a few skeins to make something. The vibrant colors drew me right in. At the time, I was not sure what that would be, but once I learned how to crochet a rectangle, it became quite clear.

The best part is that since the yarn is variegated, there is no need to change yarn colors. There are only two yarn ends to weave in. The beginning one and ending one. So simple and paired with the granny cluster stitch, so pretty. I just love the look of crochet lace tablecloth patterns.
