Crocheting, or, better: ‘constructing’, this shawl is relatively easy: first you make all the flower motifs, and connect them in a long/wide strip of flowers, just until you think your shawl has the right width. At that point you will have finished the border of your shawl.

Next up you’ll connect your flower motifs on the top side as well, after which you’ll finish the shawl in a simple but effective “v”-stitch.

The puff stitches of the flowers will come back in the border of the shawl, thus pulling the design together.

For the brides shawl I hand-sewed a pearl bead in each of the hearts of the flowers for a subtle festive and finishing touch.

The flower motifs might be a bit of a challenge, but once you’ve mastered the “puff stitch” (helpful tutorial here) and the “front post stitches” (tutorial here), you’ll zoom through the project.
Especially since the remainder of the pattern is just “v”-stitches – a wonderful easy crochet part of this design.
