About the Pattern

Ruana: Noun; A poncho with an opening down the front. 

 I’d never heard the term “Ruana” before, but wanted just such a wrap for chilly evenings. The sides of the wrap are worked first in Yarn B.  A strand of lace (Yarn C) may optionally be carried along Yarn B. The center panels are then worked with Yarn A, again optionally carrying one strand lace along with it. After grafting the center panels at the shoulders and seaming the sides to the center panel, the fronts and back are finished with a simple garter stitch edging worked in Yarn A, or optionally in a double strand of lace (Yarn C) as shown in the sample.  

The lace side panels and slip-stitch center panels are knit separately.  The side panels are seamed to the center panels and the shoulders are grafted using the kitchener stitch. 

Finished Measurements

36x43 (36x49, 43x55)”/91.5x109 (91.5x124.5, 109x140)cm
