The Vána Wrap is inspired by the eponymous character from Tolkien’s The Silmarillion, in which it is said of her, “All flowers spring as she passes and open if she glances upon them; and all birds sing at her coming.” Somewhat of a hybrid between a shawl and a scarf, the wrap starts from just three stitches and gradually widens by increasing twice as fast as decreasing. As it widens, second and third colors are brought in using intarsia to create V-shaped sections of color that turn into three long stripes as they travel along the edge. The twisted-stitch lace pattern that forms the largest block of color is engaging to knit while being easy to memorize. The intarsia, varying stitch patterns, and short rows lengths all combine to make this a fast and enjoyable project. It is also easily customizable, making it a great stash-busting project.
