I’ve always loved the simple elegance of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work. This design was inspired mostly by his decorative glass pieces. The name, however, comes from ancient Rome. Emperor Nero built a grand villa, Domus Aurea (Dough-muss Ow-ree-ahh), Latin for “Golden House,” and had the ceilings and walls covered with golden mosaics.
Designed to be knit as either a scarf or shawl, this garment is knit with clean, simple lines. Knit from one end straight through to the other, then cast off, it’s a relatively simple piece to make up. Nupps are included for simple added texture. One or more beads, or a simple knit stitch, can be worked in place of the nupps, if desired.
This is an fairly easy lace pattern.
