YARN - The After Party 44 Busy Bees Cushion

By Esme Crick

This timeless design, featuring an eye-catching geometric motif reminiscent of bees busily buzzing, will most certainly catch a glance or two atop your couch, arm-chair or outdoor setting. Designer Esme Crick used mosaic crochet techniques to achieve this bold result. Doesn’t the contrast of bright and beige simply give the Busy Bees Cushion a multidimensional pop?
