Auri is an asymmetrical crescent-like wrap named for the Ionic Greek word for breeze, whose super-simple stripe pattern creates a beautiful gradient that, in these colors, reminds me of ocean mist in the early morning. (Though I do think you could use some contrasty colors and it would look pretty amazing.) After experimenting for quite a bit, I think I've finally nailed down the increase rate for creating the ideal crescent from the top-down -- I combine that with some easy short rows in Auri to create a crescent wrap that has enough depth in the center without being a million miles across at the top. In garter stitch, this wrap is nice and soothing, but the stripes and increase sequence will keep things from getting boring.
