Shawl We Dance? began as the pattern for my wedding dress train and became a multi-functional garment that combines my love of crochet and dance. This versatile shawl with its unique fastening system can be worn in endless ways: as a shoulder wrap, shrug, skirt, or a bridal veil. Pair the shawl with the Chrysanthemum Gown to make a head-turning ensemble perfect for any special occasion.


Please note that this 20-page pattern is CHARTED only with instructions and photos for assembling, finishing, and styling the shawl.

The pattern is worked in alternating rows starting from the inner curve with each row increasing as the shawl grows. If you don’t want to work the entire pattern you can stop after completing any row and it will still look great. In order to wear the shawl as a skirt or one-shoulder top make sure the inner curve measurement will fit your body measurements and choose your size accordingly.
