We’ve got a perfect piece for you to wear this summer! The Free Spirit Ruana/Kimono by Crystal White-Van Cleemput is a versatile garment ready to accompany you throughout the warm-weather season. It has a mesh-like texture that will keep you cool but also give you that perfect bit of warmth whenever you wear it. Work it with Lion Brand medium-weight yarn and you may need two crochet hook sizes to complete it – 5.5 mm and 6.5 mm.

The best part about this crochet garment project is that you can wear it in multiple ways. Throw it over your shoulders like a shawl and let it drape nicely or tie it around your waist with a belt for an elegant look. The author provides three length option sizes so you can choose the one that suits you most. Prepare to work with basic stitches which make it a great project for beginners. The pattern is available as a video tutorial that will guide you step by step through the entire creation process.
