GAUGE:
12 sts + 8 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in V-st Lace pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
V-st (V-stitch) Work (dc, ch 1, dc) in indicated st or sp.


PATTERN STITCHES
Border Pattern (worked over an odd number of sts)
Row 1 (RS): Ch 1, turn, sc in first st, *dc in next st, sc in next st; rep from * across.


Row 2: Ch 1, turn, dc in first sc, *sc in next dc, dc in next sc; rep from * across.


Rep Rows 1 and 2 for Border pattern.

NOTES:
1. Ruanna is worked in 3 pieces; 2 long Lace Panels and 1 short Center Panel.


2. Lace Panels beg and end with rows of Border pattern.

Rows between the beg and end borders are worked in V-st Lace pattern with first and last 3 sts of each row in Border pattern.

The Center Panel is worked entirely in Border pattern.


3. The Panels are sewn together at side edges, with the Center Panel between the 2 Lace Panels.


4. V-st Lace pattern and Border pattern can be worked from written instructions or by following the Stitch Diagrams.


5. The wonderful thing about this Ruanna is that after the first Panel is completed, it can be worn on its own until you finish the other 2 Panels and sew them all together!
