Romantic Ruana Reviewed by J M Stoutenburg on 2013-10-23 **
I attempted to make this with Lion Brand Jiffy yarn, which is the same weight category as the original yarn. The length came out at only 36 inches. I estimate that when it was finished it would measure only 20 inches by 36 inches: Large enough for only a child, and I was using an N hook! I was very disappointed, as I had been looking for a ruana pattern and was initially happy to find this one. I really think that instead of telling the customer that it would look different, Lion Brand should actually take a picture of the item crocheted.

I made mine out of the Moonlight Mohair with three shades of Tweed Stripes. I used a size K hook; the results are stunning! I made mine longer (starting ch of 151) and bought an extra skien of each yarn. I am so sorry that Moonlight Mohair is being discontinued.

Love the pattern and the self fringing. I'm so sorry the yarn is no longer available, but sure an easy substitute can be found. the finished project is somewhat smaller than the photo leds to believe (which is just fine), but the messurements are true. I used different colors and only the suede yarn and it's turning out lovely. definitely will have to make another ruana, but this time with a substitute yarn, as a gift.

This ruana is beautiful when finished. But changing colors every 2 rows was tedious and I don't think the different colors of the Moonlight Madness were distinguishable. You might want to use fewer color changes for the Moonlight Madness.
Be aware, I had to buy a second ball of each color.

But you'll enjoy this when finished. It's worth it!
