Free Crochet Pattern: Romantic Ruana

Lion Brand® Lion® Suede - Moonlight Mohair
Pattern #: clsu-ruana
This elegant version of a ruana was inspired by the romantic spirit of the British Isles. The rich fabric provides warmth and style whether you are touring the castles of Dundee, Scotland, enjoying a night at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin, or going out for dinner with friends on a cool fall evening in Boston’s North End.

The beauty of the ruana wrap is just how many ways you can wear it. Leave both sides down and flowing freely as you would a poncho or tie a sash to hold the front pieces in place. Throw one side over the opposite shoulder (as shown) or both sides around opposite arms and create a cowl neck. Choose a spectacular pin to hold your wrap in place.

Top off your look with our traditional Scottish tam you’ll feel like a fair lassie for sure!

Romantic Ruana

Lion Brand® Lion® Suede - Moonlight Mohair

GAUGE:

9 sts + 9 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in single crochet with A. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

When changing yarns, leave 7" [18 cm] tails to form fringe.

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.
