Knitted Wedding Shawls Frequently Asked Questions
What is a wedding shawl?
A wedding shawl is a removable accessory worn over a wedding dress or outfit. It is worn over the shoulders and made from various fabrics to suit all seasons.
Whether you’re looking for something to keep you cozy for a winter ceremony or you want to keep it modest for your walk down the aisle, wedding shawls are an excellent accessory for any wedding day ensemble.
How do you wear a wedding shawl?
This depends on which style of shawl you decide to go with. Since there are many different styles to choose from, there are also various ways to wear one.
A wedding shawl can be draped over your shoulders and pulled forward, or it can be wrapped around your shoulders and tied at the back. Shrugs and capelets are usually worn over the shoulders and tied at the front, back, or side.
Is it better to knit or crochet a shawl?
Crochet produces a more dense, textured fabric than knitting. This makes crochet ideal for sturdy items such as hats or accessories, while knitting is ideal for delicate items such as soft sweaters and shawls.
What kind of yarn do you use for a shawl?
Lace weight yarn is very fine (any yarn thinner than fingering weight can qualify as lace weight) and is best for creating delicate, web-like items such as shawls.
