Spice Market CAL Part 7

Part 7

Part 7 will be a real fun part full of color, overlay crochet and shapes. The shapes you’re gonna crochet in this part are originally inspired by the convex roofs many Arabian cities have. Many spice markets are Arabian orientated and have most of the time sacred and old places surrounded with these typical roofs. However, the shape is also a bit flower shaped and could also easily stand for fresh flowers in all the exotic colors available. Well, time to start !
