Pattern Description:

This is an 11 page pdf with instructions to make this warm and colorful Ruana in mixed weight yarns. A Ruana is a cross between a shawl and poncho. It can be worn as a long cloak or with the front panels over your shoulders like a scarf. Warm and colorful this pattern is easy enough for a beginner to create. There are many photos throughout the pattern to explain finishing techniques so that the beginner and experienced alike will be able to complete this project with ease.

While I mixed chunky and worsted weight yarns - all worsted weight yarn could be substituted.
