Crochet Work In Progress

Moroccan inspiration

My trip to Marrakech has given me so much! Lovely memories, time to relax, and beautiful weather. But don’t forget the amazing patterns that are all over the city! In this blog, I’ll show some of my favorites and how I’m going to make them into patterns.

Geometric patterns – mochila, squares

I found so many tile patterns, I think my telephone even got tired of them! These patterns form floors, stairs, walls and fountains and are fun to look at. And with a lot of colors, they are great to make into pillows or blankets.

Sorry about the lighting in those pictures, a lot of these floors are in musea with dim lighting. Probably to protect the colors from fading!

These patterns are a challenge to make with c2c, but some are great as (granny) squares that will be joined together! But also the mochila technique is perfect for these kinds of patterns.

Blue and yellow – clothing

At the Jardin Marjorelle (which I recommend to anyone who goes to Marrakech) there is one dominant color: Marjorelle-blue (yes, it even has it’s own name!). Take a look at the pictures below and you’ll see why:

In the beautiful villa it is combined with a gorgeous yellow, making a very interesting color-combo I would have never picked myself!

Imagine an oversized sweater in this blue, with yellow details…

Palm trees – pillow

Of course, there are palm trees everywhere in Marrakech. Nothing like palm trees to make you feel like you’re on vacation!

I can imagine making some pillows with palm trees, just because it brings instant sun and happiness to your living room. Palm trees are the fireworks of plants, right?

As you can see, I have a lot of new inspiration because of my trip to Marrakech. Now all that’s left to do is find the time to write down new patterns…
