Sim­ply Cro­chet magazine Get in the flow as you work the rhyth­mic rip­ples of this mes­meris­ing blan­ket. Esme’s de­sign was in­spired by sum­mer days by the sea watch­ing the waves, mak­ing Scheep­jes Our Tribe yarn, with its sub­tle chang­ing shades, the per­fect choice. The calm­ing blues and greens cap­ture the colours of the sea beau­ti­fully, but if you fancy some­thing brighter, check out the warm palette op­tions for a funky, state­ment-piece throw.
