Pay What Works: In an effort to find a balance between more financial accessibility and sustainable pricing, I now offer a “Pay What Works” model. This allows for financial flexibility while still valuing and respecting the work and energy I and others provide in the making of this pattern. The price shown on Ravelry is the “true” value of the pattern that best reflects the work put into creating this design.

Aura is the Titan goddess of the breeze and fresh, cool air of the early morning. The Aura Stole is airy and light, with the lace and mesh patterns allowing for the wind to pass through it gently.

The stole is knit in two pieces, starting with the lace border and progressing into the eyelet mesh section. When the two pieces have been completed, they are bound-off and seamed together using the three needle bind-off.

Made specifically for Julie Asselin’s gradient yarn sets and in collaboration with Everyday Peacocks, which creator and maker of exquisite shawl pins Kam Baker, has created matching shawl pins and stitch markers for this design: the Aura Collection.
