Airali design - About me

Hi! I’m Ilaria, airali is my name spelled backwards as I have a propensity to do/see things upside down. I love tin boxes, ice cream, going for walks and absolute silence (as much as the complete opposite).

I’m a crochet designer and blogger, I work with Italian and International magazines, I designed two amigurumi books (Amigurumi Winter Wonderland and Amigurumi Globetrotters) and you can also find my patterns in Zoomigurumi books (from the first one to the eighth). Often I draw quirky characters, then I transform them into crochet toys, but I also design garments, accessories and home decor (You can browse here my patterns).

Lifelong interest in crochet and knitting, combined with a passion for design, led me to start my first blog “Where is the Wonderland? besenseless.blogspot.com ” in 2010. In April 2016 my blog has become a website called by my nickname, which also is the name of my brand: airalidesign.com
Regardless of the name change, the substance is always the same: I work with yarns and crochet hooks.

After a few years in London I’m back in Italy, again in a new home + studio where I’m going to grow my yarn stash (this time I’ve been clever, I bought a bed with storage underneath).

You can read some more things about me in this interview for Mollie Makes blog.

If you want to look around among the magazines in which I published my patterns, other collaborations and books, here is a list (almost) complete and updated.
