Varna, ‘color’ in Sanskrit, is a celebration of variegated yarn with long repeats. Paired with a neutral, solid colored yarn, the shawl lets the variegated yarn be the hero, while the solid yarn remains the unsung one.

The Varna Shawl is knit from one corner to the other edge, starting with few stitches in a row and gradually increasing on one side, to get the tapered triangular shape. It uses mosaic knitting, in which every row is worked with only one color, making the Varna Shawl a mindless and enjoyable knit.
