How to Wear a Triangular Shawl

There are many ways to style a crochet triangular shawl. One popular way is to drape it over the shoulders from the back to the front so the triangular shape hangs down the back. The triangle also looks great at the front underneath a jacket or over a long-sleeved shirt.

Another option is as a beach cover on hot summer days. They can be tied around the waist or draped over the shoulders to protect yourself from the hot sun.

What is the Best Yarn for Crochet Shawls?

The best yarn for a shawl not only depends on personal preference, but also on the season, and the occasion.

Generally speaking, you want something that will drape well to give you the most elegant look so you can wear it with many outfits and different styles.

For lightweight shawls, choose a fine or DK weight yarn. If you plan on wearing your shawl in the warmer seasons, look for a yarn that is made with natural materials such as cotton or a cotton blend. These types of yarns not only provide the drape you want, but also offer breathability, making them perfect for layering during transitional seasons.

Self-striping yarns are great for adding amazing color combinations without you having to plan out the colors or do any color changes.

For the winter, choose an acrylic or a wool yarn because those fibers will help to trap the heat to keep you warmer!

So, whether you need something to layer over a dress, or to keep warm inside in an office or outside on a cool summer evening, I hope that you’ll find something here in this collection.
