Hello, my name is Julia.  I've been crocheting for about seven years and enjoy working with thread.  I like making doilies, bookmarks, pouches, angels, and ornaments.

In 2014 I opened a shop on Etsy.  Since then I've been crocheting a lot and trying to come up with other things I can make!

Besides crocheting I also enjoy playing video games.  My shop name Draiguna is a character last name I chose in Guild Wars 2 :D  It's an anagram of guardian, one of the professions in the game.

  Here are some of my favorite projects-

My first crochet project.
Autumn Squares blanket from One Square, Many Ways.

 One of my favorite doilies which I'm making again for the fourth time :)
The pattern is Majestic, by Patricia Kristoffersen.

Carnation Rose Doily

Bookmarks with flower charms on the tassel


  1. I love how you use different thread colors, in your work, each row stands out. Your spider design block is very cute. I see you also like Patricia Kristoffersen's designs, she is my favorite designer. I think you're very talented, keep up the great work.

  2. I agree!! I love Pat's designs, have worked my way through some of the tough ones, but have not gone so far as to make color changes with any. You give me the hope that some day I will be able to make that happen, without it looking too weird!

  3. Julia, your patterns are absolutely beautiful. It is wonderful that you can create such beautiful things. I have enough problems following the written patterns. I definitely need to try some of your creations. Thank you!

  4. l love your designs, but when l come onto the pattern pages , it tells me you are not secure.

    1. Hi,

      Thank you for letting me know! It should be fixed now :)

      Kind regards,

  5. /wave Um, you game and crochet . . . we should start a club. It's rare to find someone with the talent and will to design and crochet delicate doilies who can then turn around and melt faces. How about Granny-souled Gamers? Yes, you're right, it could use some work. I think I exhausted my name creativity with Rum Running Trollops ;) Such a fun word, trollop. Anyway, it's nice to see another person out there who crochets and enjoys gaming.

  6. These are just my two favorite hobbies (well, among others...). I'm a big fan of Final Fantasy and doilies :)

  7. So cool that you play GW2.. I am an old timer from GW1!

  8. Well its something I know as well, I game, do woodwork, and Crochet. I'm not your usual typical gay man, haha x

  10. Thank you for the free (doily and bookmark) patterns !

  11. curious where can i find the pattern for the book mark with the flower charms??

  12. Hi. First I'd like to say I love your patterns. They're so delicate...
    Secondly, I was wondering if it's allowed to sell things made using your patterns? I tried finding the answer somewhere on the site but couldn't. Obviously, I'd give you all the credit for the pattern and include a link to your website.
