Lots of knitters-to-be-married want to make something special and there are some beautiful wedding projects made from Ysolda’s patterns…and not just shawls.

Dozenoaks’ Wedding Gloves, knit from the Veyla pattern from Whimsical Little Knits 2. So elegant, and perfect with her dress.

This stunning Damson was knit by Navyknits (pictured in the red shawl), for her sister to wear for her wedding. Photos are copyright of Navyknits and NatalieBellPhotography.

Another shawl knit with sister love! This amazing Ishbel was knit by Celimene for her sister in Hedgehog Fibres Merino/Silk Lace.

And finally, Joorwol’s dramatic Scroll Lace Scarf knitted up in a wool and cashmere blend. So pretty!
