How to wear crocheted triangle shaped shawls or wraps.
Wearing shawls or wraps is often times misunderstood. For most, the oldies are the ones who usually wear them and your fashion style could be questioned if you are seen wearing one.
But for me, wearing these pieces doesn’t have to be stereotyped to be old fashioned or fashion for the old. Apparently, crochet pieces nowadays has a major comeback in the fashion world and crocheted shawls is very much relatable to all age groups.
And one factor that makes all the difference is wearing these crocheted shawls in creative ways. Yes, there are a lot of ways to wear these pieces. Not just the typical draping over ones shoulders. One’s creativity is the only limit.
I have here a few on my list that I am going to share with you. And you are free to add more.
I am using my very own Gevin Grace Shawl. For a free pattern please click HERE.
Just the usual draping of a triangular shawl but the two corners at the wings is knotted at the back for an instant shrug approach.
The classic draping on the shoulder could be leveled up with the right combination of top and bottom pair. And a slightly shorter shawl just at the elbow level, will do the trick for a less mature look.
The spine of the shawl is placed on one shoulder at the side while the wings are draped over the opposite.
The spine of the shawl is at the center back and the wings are crossed at the middle front and draped on each opposite sides.
Triangular shawls can be worn like a scarf also. With the center spine at the middle front and the wings crossed at the middle back and draped at the front.
With the center spine of the shawl at the side, aligned with the arm and the winds are knotted at the waist portion on the other side.
I know there’s a lot more to wear a crocheted triangular shawl. So if you have one. Please let me know.
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Matthew 5: 43-48
