COLOURBLOCK THROW

Esme Crick’s mod­ern asym­met­ric throw has such a so­phis­ti­cated colour combo – we love it!

Simply Crochet - - CONTENTS -

De­signer Esme had au­tumn on her mind when she hooked up this misty beauty. “I was in­spired by walks in the coun­try­side, through spooky mists where patches of green ap­pear, then dis­ap­pear into the grey swirls.” Make it to snug­gle un­der, or as a Christ­mas present for some­one spe­cial.
