Ruana Minor

"This versatile ruana-style vest looks great in a light breezy yarn (shown in Rowans Kid Silk Haze) or in a heavier, warmer yarn (shown in Brown Sheep Hand-paint Originals)," says Abel. "It is worked on #9 (5.5mm) needles, so a lot of yarn weights work wonderfully, in an interesting version of entrelac-– it’s off its point!" We are tremendously taken with Abel's approach here-- another version, a big ruana using the same Entrelac-on-its-side technique, can be found here.
