Kanak is a crescent-shaped shawl featuring a textured lace stitch pattern. I used approximately 550 yards of KnitPicks Capretta and US size 5 needles to knit my sample, but any fingering-weight yarn with good stitch definition should work. The size of the shawl can be adjusted by working more or fewer repeats of the pattern. To get a drapier fabric, you could go up a needle size or two. Conversely, to get more well-defined, denser texture, you could go down a needle size, which will also increase the yarn requirement.
The pattern is a simple 12-row repeat with mostly knits and purls, and a few eyelets that appear only once every 6 rows.
