This curtains pattern is named after elements of traditional Indo-Islamic architecture that feature delicate geometrical ornaments. In the course of the day, the movement of these patterns in silhouette across the floor will enhance the pleasure of their intricate geometry.

These crochet curtains will give an atmosphere of calm and serenity to any interior, make it modern and unique, regardless of the fashion. Besides, it can be a heirloom that will be passed down to your children.

The length and width of your curtains can be adjusted as desired by adding more (omitting some) motifs. Yarn usage is given for the sample shown.

The term Jaali is used in Central Asia - in India, Pakistan and the countries surrounding, while Mashrabia is used mostly in the Arabic world; from Iran, Iraq to Morocco and Andalusia.

Additional photo-tutorial for crocheters who want to learn how to crochet all these motifs in one piece is available on my website:

Yarn: 100 % cotton or linen, loosely woven, approx. 340-400 m per 100 gr (372-437 yards per 3.5 oz). It equals to 4 ply (UK), Fingering (USA), 1 or Superfine. It is possible to use Aunt Lydia’s Fashion Crochet Size 3 (though the stitches will look a bit thinner).

Hook: 2 mm or hook suggested for your yarn. The size of one motif is regarded as gauge in this pattern. With different yarn, hook and tension you will have different size of these square motifs; your yarn usage will vary as well.
