Danish tie shawls are traditionally worn with the central point down the back, the 2 ends cross over the chest then under the arms and the ends are then tied at the back. The long points facilitate this easy tying. It works really well to keep your shoulders and upper arms warm whilst keeping the ends out of the way and the shawl secure.
You can of course wear it anyway you want!
