Sphere #014 with Triangles

The arms for the Sphere with Triangles are made following the principle used for Heart #050 with Triangles.

Sphere #010 Open

Sphere #008

For this sphere the two sub-strips are completely split. Because they are different they are marked with one or two little notches at the top. When you fix the 16 strips to the ring piece you must alternate between the two types. For Sphere #008 I used two shades of pale yellow and two shades…
