Elevate your autumn style with the captivating Forager Ruana and Shawl crochet pattern. Adorned with climbing branches, delicate leaves, and whimsical berries, embrace boho vibes and the beauty of nature by wearing an accessory that offers endless styling options.
Natalia's Forager Ruana and Shawl embodies a bohemian aesthetic that's perfect for layering, seeing you through the in-between seasons in comfort and style. Whether you choose to make a shawl or ruana, both options are ideal for staying cosy while showcasing the beauty of nature through the mosaic crochet stitches, created using Scheepjes' Scrumptious yarn.
Suitable for adventurous beginners, the simple shape of this design, which can be be made in two different versions, allows the beautiful stitches to take centre stage. For the shawl, drape it across your shoulders like a wrap or wear it as a scarf. Similar to a poncho but with a slit down the front, the ruana offers versatile styling. Drape with the back seam in the middle for a cascading effect, or overlap the front panels for added intrigue. For a unique twist, drape one front panel over the opposite shoulder, or cross them with the back seam positioned on one shoulder.
Every MAL week starts on Wednesday around noon CEST. In addition to the support in our Official Facebook Group(s), Natalia will share detailed instructions her website.
