"Valentine Gift Idea"

My table napkin ring is a thoughtful Valentine gift idea that can be made by friends, or by children as a Valentine decoration for their parent’s dinner table.

These napkin holders add a real touch of elegance and romance to a table setting, whether they are holding a cloth napkin or a paper one.

The napkin holder is worked over a plastic ring. These can be purchased from a craft store, or you may have a curtain ring or something else around the house the right size. I used the seal from a milk bottle. If you choose this option, it is advisable to either trim the jagged edges, or wind tape over them before you begin crocheting.

If the terminology used in this pattern differs from what you're used to, check my equivalency tables for easy conversion.
