The Olivine Ruana - Crochet Pattern


The hurrying rustle of crisp leaves being blown along a cobbled street; The unmistakable sounds of autumn are in the air. As we nod farewell to warmer weather, we happily welcome cozy sweaters, caramel apples and pumpkin picking with open arms!

As you skip between neatly raked piles of golden leaves, envelope yourself in the snuggly warmth of The Olivine Ruana, an over-sized layering piece that comfortably drapes over any ensemble. From the dramatic style to the detailed forest-like design, this poncho will conjure up memories of wilderness getaways to a cozy log cabin nestled in amongst the trees.



Tassels add a finishing touch of modern elegance to this already trendy look, making it a versatile piece to pair with boots and jeans, or draped as a blanket around your shoulders as you snuggle around the bonfire on a crisp autumn evening...

With towering pines in mind and the idea of creating a wrap not only full of movement but also soft and cosy enough to snuggle in, I knew I wanted to use a lofty wool blend, knowing very well that the warmth of this ruana would quickly make it a staple in any autumn wardrobe!

I absolutely loved the lush yet dense quality of my Spiced Pear Beanie, so I chose to work with the same Lion's Pride Woolspun yarn by Lion Brand... Chunky, warm and still somehow manages to stay soft and flowy when crocheted up - The perfect fit for this oversized design! 


I've labeled this pattern as easy because of the intricate stitch design, but I think an ambitious beginner may be able to tackle this one as I've also included a ton of how-to photos to help make the learning process all the more easy and enjoyable. Ready to dive into this pattern?

Tie each group of yarn at the middle point with one of the 16”/41cm strands. Fold each group in half, then tie another 16”/41cm strand around each folded bundle about 1.25”/3cm from the top – Continue wrapping the tails of the strand around the group 3 – 4 times. 

Tie the tops of the tassels onto the 6 corners of the ruana, making sure to weave the loose ends inside the middle of each tassel. Trim tassels to 5”/13cm[6”/15cm] in length.
