Brave & Colorful Knit Ruana

"I have always been a big fan of unstructured garments. I love loose layers and I think a ruana is such a versatile staple for your wardrobe! It can be worn loose, buttoned, laced with ties, sewn up as a kimono, or belted like a robe/cardigan. Plus there is no shaping within the panels, so it is a great time to learn a new stitch pattern or technique! This is knit in a GORGEOUS slip stitch mosaic stripe pattern. It gives the stripes a subtle zigzag effect. So interesting! You could combine any number of colors, or make your stripes thinner or thicker than mine - or change it up completely! Worked in a worsted weight American merino wool it works up so fast! And it is so comforting, soft and WARM!"

This is a gorgeous pattern and stitch. I like the unstructured look. I think the length would be OK, but the 48-inch circumference would probably be too small for me. Too bad this pattern doesn't have a range of bigger sizes.
