DHENER RUANA
by Amy Christoffers

_A FALL FAVORITE!_
There's something so comforting about wearing a ruana. We often joke
it's like wearing a secret blanket. The side openings are a great
asset to help regulate body temperature so that you don’t get
overheated! The long panels allow for huggable warmth and flow
beautifully with any outfit. It's a piece you can dress up or down
and still feel stylish and comfortably warm.
 
Cables and bobbles flow up the center columns of this layering piece,
bordered by garter stitch and finished with an I-cord edging.
 
Finished Size:
Approx. 26 (30, 34)" wide x 32" long down center back (not including
edging)
Note: Fronts are 4" shorter than back.

Lapland and also the color, nature and culture of Lapland. Therefore I

can call them whatever you want as long as you let them warm your
feet.” – _quoted from the Ravelry page
