With the Shawl Pin Shawl MKAL coming to an end, it’s time for the final blog in the event series, the style blog.
The versatility of the design results both from the unique shape as well as the simplicity of the stitch work. Intended as an artistic canvas to highlight your favorite shawl pin accessories, there are several ways to wear this design. Here are just a few of my favorites.
Scarf Meets Pin Styles
Wrapped around your neck like a scarf, the “Scarf Meets Pin” style highlights the pin while the shawl keeps your neck warm! Whether a long stick pin, like Bonnie Bishoff’s Dash pin, on an equilateral or perpendicular angle or a broche style pin, like JUL Designs’ Twig Lace Pin a simple swap of pins gives a different look to the ensemble.
My personal favorite style!
A unique way of wearing the Shawl Pin Shawl is pinned at the back. Several variations are available due to the dip in the center of the shawl. Below are some back and front images featuring JUL Designs’ Twig Lace Pin.
Pin Substitute Styles
A gift from my mother, this necklace is able to be twisted up and turned around, making it an unexpected, yet fun way to tie up the Shawl Pin Shawl.
Sans Pin Styles
In addition to the fantastic styles with pin, due to the linen yarn, a shawl pin is not always needed!
The images above all show the size small – knit using 2 skeins of Claudia Hand Painted Yarns Drama purchased from Black Mountain Yarn Shop. The pattern also includes directions for a 3 skein large version!
