Pineapple Wedding Veil Pattern



Here is the pattern for the wedding veil I promised.  It may help you to use this graphic and write the number of chains and the type of stitches on it.  I did dcs for the first 5 rows, trs for rows 6 to 10, dtrs for rows 11 to 15 and then trtrs for the rest of the rows.

The veil measures 3 1/4" wide at the top, 17" wide at the bottom and 18 1/2" long.

Materials

  • DMC Baroque Number 10 White Cotton Crochet Thread          
  • No 5 steel crochet hook                                          
  • Hair Comb                                         
  • Pearls
  •

Sew on the pearls and the hair comb.




Here is a good way to store the veil until the big day.  This method will keep creases from forming in the veil and also helps to block it.

Get a long tube, like from a roll of wrapping paper, and a sheet of acid-free tissue paper.  Lay the tube on one end of the tissue and then lay the veil on top of the paper.

Roll the tissue around the tube and then roll the veil up along with it.

Put rubber bands on the end to hold it in place.

  2. I have two granddaughters that are young(2yrs,7months). I am going to make them this veil and put it away until they get older and have their mothers give it to them when they are older and ready to get married.(if I'm not around for the occasion). hopefully they will appreciate what I have done for them. Thank you very much for the unique pattern. You are very talented.
