Ka’ana is a crescent-shaped shawlette knitted from the top down in worsted-weight yarn. Its shape and wide wingspan allow for multiple styles of wear. On a windy winter day, Ka’ana can be worn as a scarf, wrapped around the neck and tied securely in front. On a cool summer evening, Ka’ana’s curved top edge allows it to sit beautifully as a wrap, elegantly hugging the shoulders.

The first half of Ka’ana is knitted in garter stitch with increases on every row. It is quite simple and portable -- the perfect take-along project. The second half of Ka’ana includes a row of eyelets and a leafy edging to keep things interesting. The pattern includes both written and charted instructions to help you achieve the best possible results.

Instructions for customizing the size are included in the pattern.

Many thanks to the kind and talented knitters who tested this pattern. Your thoughtful insights were invaluable and much appreciated!

The current version of Ka’ana was released on July 25, 2012.
