Wrapped in Love Ruana


Love is in the air as we get closer to celebrating Valentine’s Day. And I think love works all year long, so I was inspired to design the Wrapped in Love Ruana!

One Friday afternoon, this idea popped in my head as I was working on the last few rows of a super cozy blanket. The clarity of the idea was so vivid, I practically ran to my craft room to dive into my stash of yarn.

I keep saying that I’m not going to buy any more yarn until I make a noticeable dent in my stash, but I did have to get yarn to complete this idea, so you may not have enough in your stash, unless you regularly feed it super bulky yarn.

Also, I wanted to challenge myself to make a holiday specific design, as I don’t often plan for holiday designs and make whatever feels right at the time. I think I totally nailed this theme. Don’t you agree?


*Disclosure: Since I stash dived, I came up with some Lion Brand Wool-ease Thick& Quick that had been hanging out for a while. I don’t use super bulky yarns too often compared to worsted and bulky weight yarns, but the added thickness adds the coziness and a dramatic look.

Lion Brand Wool-ease is a classic yarn line, and I hope you’ve used it several times already, and if not, definitely grab this rich in color, soft, slightly haloed, acrylic and wool blend yarn.
