Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • simple increases

Pattern Description:

Reminiscent of the colors of ocean mist in the early morning, Auri (Ionic Greek for breeze) is a large wrap with a simple three-color striping pattern that creates a beautiful gradient. The wrap is knit in Garter Stitch from the top down and is shaped with alternating increase rows. Short rows help give Auri height without too much length across the wingspan and the resulting shape is crescent-like, but asymmetrical, which gives it a unique look when worn. In Baah's fingering weight merino, silk, and cashmere blend, Aspen, Auri is lighter than air and luxurious both on and off the needles.
