Maria MerlinoThis is a pattern that is the Arabic script or abjad for the word Salaam, which translates to Peace. It is suitable for Muslim or Islamic households. The butterfly adds a decorative element and is done in the lacet stitch. It’s easy to eliminate if you choose. I worked vertically for ease of construction as I find that wide pieces tend to buckle. You can use this as a curtain, wall hanging or as a pillow front.
