This pattern has been saved to My Knitting Patterns.
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.
