This is the new table runner I made to replace the turquoise cloth one with variegated turquoise yarns. Since I'm having a wall in the room painted turquoise, I decided to cut down on the amount of that color used there. The sofa is light cream with solid turquoise cushions so I thought the table runners would look better in white with turquoise yarn.
I used the same variegated turquoise yarn that has yards of one shade before changing. I felt I achieved the variegated look by making sure each row of the pattern held a slightly different shade. I won't ever again make the mistake of not checking a skein of variegated yarn to make sure each shade is no longer than 6".
It's very easy to put too much of one color in a room but I think mine is okay now. The wall gets painted on Thursday and I'm hoping I'll like it. I've never had an accent wall before so this will be a new experience for me.
