Save the Last Dance: 10 Knit Shawls and Wraps for Special Occasions

[2]

Special occasions are the best. There’s nothing like getting all dolled up in anticipation of a big event. Whether it’s a wedding, graduation, baptism, or holiday, who doesn’t love looking and feeling glam from time to time? The best part is you can top off any dress with these beautiful knit shawls and wraps [3] for special occasions.

Imagine how beautiful these free knitting patterns [4] will look with your nice clothes. They will pair effortlessly with anything you already own and really give your outfit an extra dose of sass.

I recently attended a wedding and I had no idea what to wear. Of course, I would have loved to buy a new dress at my favorite boutique, but I didn’t really want to spend the money on a piece of clothing I would likely only wear once. Instead, I dug through my closet and found every woman’s saving grace: the little black dress.

However, if you don’t jazz it up a bit, a little black dress can feel, well, pretty basic. Luckily, I decided to get creative (and crafty) and brainstormed ways to turn a blank canvas into a truly memorable outfit. How did I do it? By working up a knit shawl pattern [3]. Suddenly, my standard special occasion uniform had transformed into a beautiful, never-before-seen ensemble.

Added bonus: the knit shawl was a conversation piece all night. Everyone wanted to know where I got it, and I happily informed them it was a one-of-a-kind, handmade piece.

It felt great to be able to flex my creative muscles and save some money at the same time. Plus, I now have a knit wrap I can either dress up or dress down.
