Mountain Ruana

For those of you that have been following my blog a while, you might recognize the yarn in my latest published design. This ruana is made with the Universal Yarn “Mohair Mountain” that I told you about earlier this year in the post “Now That’s a Ball of Yarn”.

The stitch pattern used in my design is super stretchy, so keep that in mind if you are a little shorter and work fewer rows for all the panels. Or if you want a wider ruana increase the Back Panel foundation by 8 stitches (this will add 2 shells/5 inches to the back panel and 1 shell to each front panel), and decrease the number of rows by 2 rows.

You can find this pattern and over 40 others in the Fall Special Issue out from Crochet! Magazine : Warm & Cozy Crochet.  It will be on newsstands now.  I have an extra copy of this issue, and as a little goodie for my readers I am going to have a drawing for it.

Just leave your name and a comment telling me what your favorite crochet projects to work on in the winter are by 6 p.m. (Colorado time) Friday, October 12th.  I’ll announce the winner’s name here Saturday, October 13th.

  1. The ruana is gorgeous!!! I love the colors. In the early winter I participate in the 60/60 Scarf Challenge and work on Christmas gifts. Once all the “obligations” are complete. I like to work on some sort of afghan to keep warm and cozy on a cold winter’s night.

  2. That’s beautiful! Congrats on being in the special issue. In the winter I usually work on bigger things like prayer shawls or blankets, since I don’t mind having the warmth on my lap when the weather is cold. Summertime is only for small stuff!
