      Hi Alex – I wear mine sort of whenever the mood strikes! I wear them to add a pop of colour to my outfit or, for a warmer shawl, as a scarf to keep out the chill.

    What is the name of the pattern for the bright green shawl with the caption “off center but still wrapped around the shoulders”? Is it available for purchase? Thank you Karen

    What’s the green lacey shawl name that is placed off centered. It’s beautiful. I’m using IG to search for beautiful shawl ideas. My office is cold year round.

    Oh my goodness, all of these shawls are so gorgeous! I’m currently working through a sweater, but I’ll definitely be returning here for my next project. Thanks for sharing!

    1 skein with the triangle in front and the sides wrapped and secured so that it’s rather cowl-like is my go to. It means all my scoop neck dresses can be worn all year without my cleavage turning blue in the cold!

    This is a great post! Sometimes I find it hard to even pick a shawl pattern because I can’t imagine how I would wear it. This helps take some of the mystery away 😊

    I love a shawl with the point down in the front. We call it the “hipster bib”.

    I don’t wear shawls because to me, it’s too much work to keep them draped just so. I’m fine with lacy caplets that fasten securely so that you can just forget it and go about your day, but shawls feel like a constant struggle.

      I want to add that I dress u my decor with scarves. I drape them over the backs of chairs and use them as dresser scarves and table runners.

    I love the ability to wrap it around so have been leaning towards the crescent shaped shawls lately. Love the one skein wonders, but sometimes it just needs more. I am sharing your post with my knitting group because they all lament they don’t know how to wear shawls!! They act like I am a shawl goddess, but truly I just throw them on. LOL
