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 big cushy crocheted version of the traditional ruana features crochet ribbing, a pixie pointed hood, and alternate sizing instructions to make anything from a slim belted wrap to an extra-wide cape-style coverup, and now has instructions for pockets 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 11.50 mm hook, this wrap works up quickly and feels super cozy. Wear it belted, over-the-shoulder, or add buttons or ties for a closed vest style.

The pattern for this versatile, convertible wrap includes alternate sizing instructions, construction charts, and detailed written instructions. The Woodsman’s Wife Ruana is a great Easy level pattern for crocheters ready to move on from hats and scarves and includes all the instructions you need to make this fun fantasy piece for autumn!
