Sharon's Falkner's gorgeous crocheted Enterlac Ruana uses a fascinating, yet surprisingly simple Tunisian technique. The plush, self-shading yarn does most of the heavy lifting, creating separate diamonds of color in a harlequin effect. Worked with a slightly larger hook than normal, this Tunisian entrelac, usually quite dense, has terrific drape to make this your go-to winter outerwear.
