    Hello Mikey,
    Thank you for such a great tutorial on You Tube on this Ruana. I have a concern as a beginner, I’m looking at your video and it shows the various numbers in the pattern that coincide with the sizes, your pattern is clear however the one in the link you put there is NOT the same. Please have someone post the correct link for the Ruana poncho. I’ve purchased all the yarn and now need to start. Thank you.
    Sincerely,
    Nancy-Jo Nunez.

    Can the ruana be made by using 2 strands of yarn instead of bulky?

    Hi, I’m totally in love with this pattern, but I have a couple questions. I’m making the largest size and I was wondering if 28″ is long enough for the back and front sides. I can see it for the child sizes, but for someone who is a large person, 28″ would only rest mid back or so. I am adjusting mine and gonna see how that goes. Also, I’m really confused with the front. I am still learning how to read patterns. The Shape Neck section doesn’t make sense to me. If anyone could take a picture or a short tutorial on this section, it would be so appreciated. Thank you for these wonderful patterns. I’m constantly trying new things and have branched out from just making blankets.

    Please make a tutorial for this pattern. I have started and am very confused on the “neck shaping” part of the pattern. Thank you in advance!

    I started this yesterday after I picked up 2 sprinkle cakes bc I wanted to see how the yarn worked up. It is so seriously easy. It should be labeled a beginner level pattern. I am doing mine in Mocha, but I might add in birthday or vanilla.

    This is such a wonderful looking project and I would love a tutorial on this. I make mostly blankets and hats so something else intimidates me. Your tutorials give me the courage to try something new.

    Can you increase the width of the prayer shawl? I would like to do it with maybe 401 chain and 199 spaces. Any help would be appreciated, I would be using Caron Cakes, and maybe two whole cakes.

    My granddaughters saw this pattern on the reveal this weekend but I am allergic to wool and also think that the pattern might be a little bulky for them as they are all three very dainty in stature xs and s ages 18-20. If I change to a #5 acrylic yarn do you think it would work ok. I don’t usually make things like this. I’ve been crocheting for 50 years and don’t ever remember making a poncho or sweater. Lol.

      Melody, this pattern would probably be great in acrylic. ( I dislike wool.) I’m thinking about Lion Brand Jiffy, which I think is a 5 or 6. A finer yarn will give a thinner fabric, and make up in a smaller size. The key will be to check size as you go. (If your gauge is different, make sure the size is the same as you work, and if not adjust accordingly, i.e. if the pattern uses 30 stitches to go 20 inches, but you use 20 stitches to get to that size, use 20 stitches and adjust the counts accordingly.) This pattern may be great for your first adventure into clothes because it reads like a blanket pattern. Good luck. And don’t give up.

    I like this on either a man or woman. I like following your videos especially as I’m a UK person who accidentally learnt US terms so get so confused on the written instructions! Also, its really nice following with a calm voice it’s really reassuring for a beginner like me πŸ˜€ The poncho itself, I would actually sew the sides up when I make for my bf but can see it in many colours and even small pompoms instead of tassels for a playful approach

This ruana will be a perfect gift for my daughter so I would love to make this for her. So please share your knowledge and love of crochet with a tutorial of this pattern.
