When my flower-loving daughter needed a cover-up for her flower girl outfit at an autumn wedding, I knew just what to make. This daisy-inspired crochet lace border provides the perfect trim for a simple, fast-knitting shrug, transforming it into something special for a special day.

Choose a double-knitting or light worsted yarn with a soft hand and a touch of sheen (such as a silk blend) for perfect results.
