Hello everyone! I’m back with my new, favourite shawl (the knitted Sunday Market Shawl) and the 8 different ways to wear it! It doesn’t matter if you don’t have the same shawl, because I’m sure you have a big scarf or old shawl waiting for you in a corner of your closet.
Let’s explore the 8 looks together! Use this figure and other photos to guide yourselves!
NOTE: Pardon that black suitcase in the background of the photos. It’s my housemate’s. (-_-X)
Wrap the length of the shawl around your body and tuck in the ends. Secure and cinch your waist with a belt.
Tie ends A and B together. Tie ends C and D together. Put your hands through the 2 small loops created from the tied ends. Wear it as a baggy cardigan with the body of the shawl resting on your shoulders.
Tie ends A and D together. Hang the shawl on your neck, with the knot positioned behind the neck.
1. Position shawl
2. Bring the top ends of the shawl to the centre of your chest and cross them
3. Twist the ends
4. Tie a knot and secure by tucking it in
Create Look 3. Then tie ends B and C together in front of you. Move the new knot to your back. A nice keyhole will be formed at the back.
1. Position the shawl on your shoulders
2. Hold on to the 2 ends in front of you
3. Tie the 2 ends together at your back
4. This is how it looks behind
Just wind the shawl around your neck haphazardly to create a natural drape.
If all else fails, just let the shawl hang on your shoulders.
Isn’t that easy? I hope the pictures make the instructions easier to follow. I’m sure some of you definitely know of more ways to wear a simple shawl like this. These are just the 8 ways that I thought of at the point of the photo-taking.
I personally find Look 2 very inspiring! It’s easy to add different layers to create a different look. This is how I wore Look 2 the other day… when I was in school blogging about the Sunday Market Shawl for the first time.
