I love to wear a shawl draped with its center point to the front. Over the course of a day, however, I will fuss and fidget with the drape, and the ends, and my shawl pin until wearing a beautiful shawl is as much of a distraction to me as it is a fashion statement. Enter the “showl” – a shawl-cowl hybrid that incorporates the best of both items. It stays put without a shawl pin and lets you show off your beautiful stitching to its fullest! It’s sure to become your new favorite accessory!
