To make it into a veil, I crocheted a chain through the top, gathering it to fit into a comb. The crochet came out between the wedding and the reception, and I was left with this shawl.
EZ's instructions were so easy to follow and gave me a wonderful template to use!

Edited: I knit this in Merino Oro on US 1s. I also just fixed the link -- sorry about that!
Edit #2: I swear I checked the link and it worked, but it reverted back. Here's the website if the link still isn't working! www.kknit.blogspot.com Thanks for all the great comments!
