Fall 2016 promises to be the season that we all enjoy wearing stylish wraps like these ruanas! A ruana is similar to a shawl, but shaped like a poncho with an opening up the front.
Cristina Mershon first designed our Around-Town Ruana in a combination of two yarns, the beautifully shaded Boutique Unforgettable and two solid shades of Red Heart Soft. It has been a popular free design on our website and can be made as shown or in your own favorite shade of Unforgettable.
We loved how wonderfully wearable this ruana was and wanted to offer a knit version. So we asked Lorna Miser to design the knit Woodland Ruana Wrap with Red Heart Medley that is a bulky weight yarn that comes in luscious shadings.
We are also seeing lots of faux fur in trend reports for Fall and so a ruana with a fur collar was the logical choice for a third way to wear a ruana. Cristina Mershon also designed the crocheted Savvy Ruana using Red Heart Stellar and Boutique Fur. Stellar is a fast-to-crochet jumbo weight yarn, but it is lofty so it doesn’t weigh you down.
Whether you are spending your time in the country or the city, any of these ruanas will be the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe. I also like how gift-able they are, since they are so easy to fit!
We’d love to know which of our versions you’d most like to make for yourself. Go below the photos to the voting app and click on your choice.
If you crochet your Ruana in other colors, please share it with us on our Facebook page. Your choice may be an inspiration to someone else!
