Aurikel is my tribute to the delicate knitted doilies and their lovely feminine patterns. In reality I don’t have much need for doilies, but I love knitting lace and I’m smitten with the incredible leaf and flower patterns that old fashioned knitted doiles often have.
One of my absolute favorite things is, when lace patterns are knit with thicker wool and on larger needles. It makes them so much more dramatic and gives the patterns a graphic quality. So these are the ideas that Aurikel developed from.
