Ruana Crochet Pattern

According to Wikipedia, “a ruana is a poncho-style outer garment typical of the Andes regions of Venezuela and Columbia, particularly in the Boyaca department and Antioquia.  The word ruana comes from the Chibcha  meaning “Land of Blankets,”  used to refer to the woolen fabrics manufactured by the Muisca natives.”

A ruana is a free-flowing wrap with an open front, similar to a large scarf.  You can wear the ruana long in front and open like shawl, or throw one or both sides over your shoulder(s) for a more romantic or dramatic cape.  The key is to allow the fabric to completely cover your shoulders. There are many guides on the internet that show the various ways that you can wear the ruana.

For those of us who don’t live in the Andes, a ruana is not only warm but wearable art.  This third layer piece is comfortable, striking and warm! It’s a year-round cover-up for even those cooler Spring or Fall evening over a t-shirt.

One size fits all and floats over the figure.  It’s fabric with function as well as beauty and elegance that is just plain fun to wear!

The difference that we love about this particular pattern is the unique “V” point at the back.

This pattern is very easy and uses the single and double crochet stitches. The only special stitch that you’ll need to take note of is the reverse single crochet for the border. You can use the ordinary single crochet instead.

Ruana Crochet Pattern Notes:

1. Three Squares are made, then crocheted together to make the Ruana.
