The sun is shining, and the birds are chirping, and I’m wearing my new Maddie Ruana, which means that I can conquer the world! That may be a bit dramatic, but wear this gorgeous ruana over a tee and jeans for a dinner date, or over a swimsuit this summer and you’ll feel like you can conquer the world, too!

Maddie Ruana

What I love most about the Maddie Ruana is the drape, the feel of the fabric, and the way it makes me feel confident no matter the occasion. Isn’t it gorgeous?

The Maddie Ruana comes in two sizes: one size and plus size. See sizing info below near the materials list.

We are using CotLin yarn for this project (yarn substitutions included below!) which is a cotton/linen blend. Because of this it drapes beautifully and would be great for warm weather to keep you covered but cool.

Find this pattern on Ravelry, Etsy, or right here in the Heart Hook Home Blog Shop!

If you want to use this as a swimsuit coverup (which would be SUPER CUTE!) I suggest making a drawstring using either an I-Cord, a regular chain, or a cord made using a Lucet Fork. This is by far the fastest method, and creates a more consistent cord. Practice makes perfect, of course, so make sure to check out this Lucet Fork tutorial.

We are using the Woven Lattice stitch for this pattern. It consists of just chains and single crochets, so it is not too difficult once you get in the groove. Check out the full written and video tutorial for this stitch if you want to practice first!


The “one size” fits up to about 1XL and the “plus size” fits up to about 5XL.

Other yarn choices:

Other great yarn options would be Truboo from Lion Brand, Premier Cotton FairSpinesse, or even Brava Sport which is an acrylic. I do recommend sticking to a cotton or bamboo blend if possible but acrylic would work fine if you’re stash busting.

Note that you will want to block this ruana after crocheting it, no matter which yarn you choose. Here’s a full tutorial on how to block crochet.

    1. Hi Vanessa! There is not a pullover using the same stitch pattern as the ruana...however, I do have the Easy Peasy Pullover if you would like to check it out: https://hearthookhome.com/easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy-pullover-crochet-pattern/
  1. Thank you for the discount code on patterns and Happy Mothers Day to you too! I chose the Maddie Ruana pattern and have a question. Are both sizes in this pattern? Is the largest size 44 inches at the bust? I will need mine a little larger. Sandy
    1. Hi Sandy! Yes, both sizes are included in the pattern. The measurement given for the sizes is the overall width of the Ruana, not the bust. So the "One-Size" would be 40" across the back, plus the 2 panels in the front which should each be about 18-19" wide.
  2. Hi, I purchased your Maddie Ruana pattern a while back and finally getting to start on it. I got it off Ravelry and I'm a little confused about the size. On the pattern it says cahin 154 to start but that seems just very large, I even went down a hook size and it comes out way too wide for me (I am usually an L) is it possible that I purchased the 5xl instead of 1 size fits all? Would you be able to tell me the smaller size starting chain count if possible, I can just follow the rest of the 5xl pattern for the rest. Thank you and I love your patterns, you are an inspiration. Sabrina
    1. Hi Sabrina! Both sizes are included in the pattern...the "one-size" should measure approximately 38" wide before blocking.
  3. I'm also stuck on row 4. Rows 4 and 7 look very similar, but there is just enough differences that I'm not certain what needs to be done. I think Row 4 should start: ch 1, turn, sc in first st., ch-3, sk next sc, sc around ch sp after that, I'm not not clear. Do you have a visual pattern or video that could help clarify?
  4. Hello, Stuck on row 4. Am I only doing 1 sc inbetween the two chain spaces? Because in row 5 I am supposed to sc in next three sc, but I did not crochet three sc consecutively in previous row. More pictures would be extremely helpful. Please advise. Thanks!
    1. Hi! I do have a video tutorial for this stitch pattern which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6FltkA5vjY
  5. Hi. As a complete beginner (less than a week since starting) who has only learned to chain & single crochet this seems like an ideal pattern to practice those with a purpose. However, once I started a sample to learn the pattern, I suddenly come across a double crochet thrown in & had to quickly check how that was done! Your description should therefore state it consists of chains, single & some double crochet stitches. Having said that I am still going to make a wrap using this pattern but a warning about the dc would have been appreciated before starting
    1. Having said that I did enjoy making my sampler (mistakes and some redos included ) & have now bought the pattern (I will still make a simple rectangular wrap first) You are very generous with the free knowledge you pass on to us and it is very much appreciated. Thank you
  6. How long does this measure in the front when it’s on? Where does it hit on the thighs? In the pic with shorts it looks short but in the back view pick of you wearing it it looks quite long. Can’t wait to get started!
    1. Hi Sandra! No, the sides are not stitched together on this one...but you certainly can if you want to!
  7. Beautiful! You look like a million bucks! You are so talented. I am getting blank emails with nothing to click on. Something is broken in the link?
  8. You are Stunning in this! Absoulutely shine like a star! A diamond in the rough. :) Flipping gorgeous!,,, I tried to open my email and just asking if the links are broken? , i get alot of letters and numbers and blocks and stuff,
