I am quite a big fan of shawls. Whether they are light and lacy or textured and cozy, I love to knit them and I love to wear them. They are the perfect way to fancy up an otherwise plain outfit, perfect for keeping cozy at the coffee shop, and the possibilities in stripes, colors, and patterns are endless! To knit, they are a rather portable item and shawl patterns come in a wide variety of difficulty levels depending on what I’m looking for at the moment. What’s not to like?

How to wrap it just right so it has that effortless flowy feel for a larger shawl, or a cute scarf in a smaller version. Here is a little inspiration to help you get just the fashion forward look you want!
The Road I Took shawl by Dieuwke van Mulligen is lovely and long, perfect for styling so many ways!
Wrapped around and around like a scarf, pinned in front as a boho layered top, pinned as a long shawl with the ‘arms’ in front, or simply wrapped with the triangle in front.
