This KnotYourselfOut crochet ruana pattern is named: REALLY RACY RUANA.
I really do like this ruana. It is very versatile and can be worn in several different ways -- crossed in the front, open in the front, or one front panel over the shoulder. It fits a lot like a poncho, except that it is open in the front. As you can see from the photos, it has a beautiful drape in the back and all around.
Thank you for checking out my ruana.
This crochet pattern is suitable for an INTERMEDIATE crocheter. It uses standard US English crochet terminology. It has been tested for clarity AND accuracy by a professional crochet designer. In addition, it contains step-by-step how-to photos. I am confident this pattern will make for a happy crochet experience (and a very striking ruana).
This ruana is worked as one continuous piece, and then the “arches” rows are added onto each of its two outer edges.
The ruana’s main body is comprised of wrapped double crochet stitches and “ribbed” rows. The ribbed rows are comprised of half double crochet stitches worked in back loops only. Detailed photos and instructions explain the wrapped double crochet stitches, just in case you are not familiar with them. They are not difficult.
The rows of “arches” on the ruana’s outer edges consist of rows that combine chain spaces and single crochet and rows that combine double crochet and single crochet. Some of these rows are also worked in back loops only.
I do provide a gauge for this ruana, but it is basically one-size-fits-most.

I absolutely love to crochet! My mother taught me how when I was five years old, and it occupied a lot of my childhood.
It was during my time living in Bulgaria, as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer, that I first began to dream about writing and publishing my own crochet patterns.
As the years passed, work became my main focus, but I continued to dream about becoming a crochet designer and I collected inspiration from the many different places I was working in and traveling to: Bulgaria, Boston, Germany, Canada, Ireland (to name a few).
It was the birth of my son, ultimately, that finally gave me the opportunity to realize my dream. When my son was a baby, I wrote and published two crochet books (Painted Jute Rugs, Annie’s Attic, 2010 & Elegant Beaded Bags, Leisure Arts, 2013).
When my son began school my focus shifted to selling patterns online. I have been having the absolute time of my life -- crocheting, imagining crochet, writing about crochet, and engaging with many amazing crochet-lovers in online communities!
Home is now Toronto in Canada.
Thanks for reading my profile. I hope you will find a design in my shop that inspires you (the way it did me) to stitch up something beautiful.
