Spin me round – graphic throw by Esme Crick

Simply_Crochet_issue81_throw

Esme Crick’s throw is a fascinating mix of circles and squares that create a dazzling feast for the eyes. Made in contrasting blues and greens, square motifs with a central circle are placed together in rows. The effect is quite stunning, and the fluffy pompom fringe perfectly matches the circular motif.

The pattern makes this throw look complex, but as it’s made up of separate squares stitched together, it’s actually as easy as a granny blanket!

To hook up this fantastic pattern, you’ll need:

Caron Simply Soft Aran (100% acrylic 170g/288m) in Dark Country Blue (9711), Pagoda (0014), Blue Mint (9608), Sage (9705)

A 6mm (US J/10) hook
