This shawl looks very dainty and classy to wear over a sleeveless or short-sleeved wedding dress. the length is just right and the design stitch used is very simple. However, since I know how to crochet, I think I'd like to make a more elaborate shawl if I were to make one for the bride. Thanks for this pattern made available right on the same page
