Shine bright like a diamond on your special day in the Diamond Sky Spring Wedding Shrug. Show off this gorgeous crocheted shrug during the ceremony if your house of worship requires covered shoulders or while dancing the night away as the weather cools. This exquisitely beautiful free crochet pattern is easy to follow and comes in five different sizes for easy fitting.

Though you may never find another occasion to wear your stunning gown, you'll certainly be able to wear this beautiful shrug again. The pure white looks amazing, blending in to your dress, but if you'd rather a pop of color, you can make the shawl in a hue that complements your scheme.
