The beauty of traditional Orenburg and Haapsalu lace techniques comes together to make this beautiful bridal shawl. Worked flat in two pieces, the Orenburg center is an easy, relaxing knit, which is paired with a lavish Estonian border, studded with Swarovski crystal beads and beautiful teardrops that adorn the edges of the shawl.

Either as a bridal shawl, or veil, this design is the perfect accessory for your special day…luxuriously elegant and engrossing to knit, yet quick enough to fit into the busy schedule of a bride-to-be.
