Wedding shawl patterns for the big day
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.
If you’re looking to crochet, the Rose Petal Wrap is a good option. The size is easy to customize, so it can work on everyone from the bride to the flower girl. Try making it in Schachenmayr Catania Fine for a breathable cotton shawl.
The Sixpence Shawlette by Corrina Ferguson is a lovely item that’s simple and beautiful at once, with a stockinette body and detailed edging. Use Dream in Color Everlasting Sock for a soft wool choice with light variegation.
The Emilia Rectangle Lace Shawl by Rita Maassen is something you can wear to any event. Its light and airy lace pattern can work with nearly every outfit. Malabrigo Lace would give this a luxurious, indulgent feel.
Wedding Shawl Cecilia by Rita Maassen is another airy, open lace choice. Rowan Kidsilk Haze is a great option for a little bit of fluff that won’t distract from the lace. Go traditional with a white shawl, or shake things up with a bold color.
If you’d rather wear a shrug than a shawl, the Sonoma Shrug by Monika Sirna is a beautiful and versatile option. Make it with Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino for a soft choice, which will fit close to the body and keep you warm.
If simply making a shawl isn’t enough, you could always knit the whole dress. Laguna by Jean Chung is a short option, which could be great for a beach wedding or as a reception dress. Try making it with Madelinetosh Pashmina or Pure Silk Lace for a feeling of luxury on a special day.
