V’Ann Cornelius was an excellent origamist. She wrote Don’t Need Mommy for This Origami!, a book whose title was long overdue, designed an amazing triangular box for transporting slices of cake (and numerous other boxes), and designed many plinths for origami display. She worked at the Mingei Museum in San Francisco, was on the board of directors of Origami USA, and for many years was in charge of the exhibits at Origami USA’s national convention. She was also really incredibly nice. I designed this scarf for V’Ann when I learned of her stomach cancer diagnosis (the disease killed her). The yarn is soft and comforting and I’m told that V’Ann loved it.
The star motif was inspired by one of V’Ann’s origami models, and the remainder of the scarf was inspired by the Silk Bamboo Ribbed Scarf by Janet Scanlon.
