This ruana is an such an easy pattern with just a two row repeat. It’s three rectangles sewn together and… BOOM! you have the cutest layering piece for fall! (or spring… or the Bahamas 😉 ) I know the pictures have nothing to do with the Bahamas, but I liked the cheesy rhyme so much that I couldn’t help myself.

I used Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton and I just love how easy this cotton is to work with. It’s a mercerized cotton so it has little bit of sheen to it and it doesn’t split at all when crocheting. You can find the yarn HERE.
