If you're in-like with the ruana trend but you don't like how ostentatious they can be, the Veronica Knit Ruana Pattern is for you. This ruana wrap pattern has all of the freedom of the classic ruana, with the open front and loose, cropped sleeves, but it also boasts all of the class of a sweater vest or cardigan, with its short construction, tasteful buttons, and neutral coloring. This ruana pattern may seem complicated at first-glance, but with a quick read-through of the instructions, you'll learn that you can knit a ruana with relative ease.

I love patterns done all in one piece. This pattern is more like a vest but I do like the detail in it. It will look better in a solid color since it will show off the detail. The instructions are fairly easy to follow and it should knit up quickly. I am not a fan of seed stitch but it does go well with the other diamond stitch pattern. Thank you.

Not a ruana, but it is an adorable pattern.
