Share the Love:

Spring is here and that means wedding season will soon be upon us. Whether you’re a bride, bridesmaid, or looking to give a handmade gift, a beautiful shawl is always a great idea. We’ve collected some of the best and most beautiful wedding shawl patterns  here, just waiting to be made for someone’s big day.

The SOS Shawl by Trisha Paetsch is a lovely half-circle lace shawl that would look beautiful in any color. Try making it in Lang Yarns Merino 200 Bebe or Fyberspates Vivacious 4-Ply if you want to stick with a fingering yarn, though the pattern provides information on adapting it to different weights.

Something Blue by Deux Brins de Maille is an airy shawl that’s light enough to double as a scarf if needed. A soft yarn like BC Garn Baby Alpaca will add a feeling of luxury.

    My niece had a wedding in her new country of Norway last summer. I really wanted to knit her a shawl but, after much thinking, I decided to knit her a blanket, which was going to be a lot more pratical for the young couple starting out in a cold region.
    Maybe I’ll make a shawl for their first baby?

    i knit and crochet 3″ doily’s approximately 300 total. Her florist made them into flowers which were added to the bouquets for my daughter and her bridesmaids. After the wedding the maid of honor carefully removed the knit and crochet flowers and sewed them onto a beautiful forever quilt she had made for them. Another of the bridesmaids did some hand embroidery and the other bridesmaid did the hand quilting. A beautiful memory from her wedding day!
