Your eyes do not deceive you! This is a four-and-a-half foot by 5 inch friendship bracelet table runner for my Thanksgiving table. Let’s be real, Friendsgiving is the only Thanksgiving I’ve celebrated as an adult, but what better than a giant friendship bracelet to tie (😉) your dining table together.

Bonus idea: Personally, I’m a BIG fan of activities in semi-structured social situations. (We had coloring placemats for adults at my wedding, it was awesome.) If you want to make your table runner an interactive component of your Friendsgiving, just don’t finish it and you and your friends can add to it throughout your Turkey Day.

If you’ll notice the long tails attached to my runner in the photos, the interactive element is what I’m going for this year, so I’m leaving my bobbins attached.

Double bonus idea: The finished table runner is basically a macramé scarf, so if you’d like a thoughtful host gift idea, this table runner can pull double duty!

The yarn: This runner was made with two strands of beautiful, single-ply wool held double for extra thickness. I used partial skeins of Brown Sheep Company’s Burly Spun yarn in Spicy Mustard (yellow), Glacier Ice (blue) & Ruby Red (red). What better yarn to use for a Thanksgiving project than something that’s spun with 100% American wool?

How to make a giant friendship bracelet with hearts

Like I said, this project is quite simply a classic, knotted friendship bracelet like you’d find at a summer camp.* I guess since we’re changing the scale of the project and using wool instead of embroidery floss, this project would technically fall under the macramé category. At the end of the day, it’s just a matter of tying the right knot in the right place using the right color. If you ever made friendship bracelets as a kid, it’s truly like riding a bike.

*This project is also a slight nod to my favorite childhood Thanksgiving movie, The Addams Family Values, featuring a pilgrim play at a summer camp because that makes total sense. Hopefully fellow 90s kids out there will appreciate this wink.

For the cute heart design, I followed this tutorial (the video from which is embedded below), using red for the hearts, blue for the chevron shapes, and yellow to fill in the rest. I loved following that tutorial because it also includes a chart for when you’ve got the knotting down and just need to remember what color to work next and in what direction.
