Define Ruana/ Sunday Sampler

Sunday Sampler

Before we know it, the cold winds of winter will be here. After record-breaking heat here in my area, I’m ready. And in my email, there was a  new word. Ruana. Let me define.

According to Red Heart: “A ruana is similar to a shawl, but shaped like a poncho with an opening up the front.” They have 2 crochet and one knit version at the link above.

And on Dictionary.com:
noun 1.a poncholike outer garment of heavy wool, worn especially
in the mountains of Colombia.

Here are a couple examples from Pinterest.

 There are sewn versions as well online. They are more blanket-like. As an accessory, I think the crochet version is very pretty.

Here’s my beginning in Homespun Yarn:

Thistle Stitch Ruana

Calling it “Thistle Stitch Ruana”.  If there’s not enough yarn, I have a plan B antidote.
