The ruana is a traditional style of wrap worn by many cultures including the Celts and the native peoples of the Andes. It consists of one large rectangle with a slit in the front half that allows the wearer to wrap or belt it in a number of different ways. This crocheted version includes a hood as well!

This cuddly ruana feels like a pumpkin spice latte with maple bacon sprinkles, only for your shoulders. The main body is worked flat in one whole piece, while the hood is worked separately in one piece and then seamed together. Made with a super bulky yarn and a “P” hook, this wrap can be finished in one rainy fall weekend (with a hot drink by your side, of course.)

The pattern for this versatile, convertible wrap includes alternate sizing instructions and construction charts, as well as a photo-tutorials for the double chain technique.
