Esme short sleeved top knitting kit
Esme is the statement piece of our new collection! As well as the stunningly beautiful jumper with cable knit detail, the pattern also includes this sleeveless and collarless version. Esme short sleeved top is significantly different and a bonus that it can be made from the same design. (See Esme long sleeved jumper)
Don’t take our word for it see Susan’s blog entitled “Wow! Did you really knit that?” . As she says, it’s a phrase she has been basking in hearing for the last couple of weeks
