Free Pattern!! Child's Lacy Head Scarf

 A few years ago my mother in law made a lovely head scarf for my daughter.  It was so adorable and looked so precious on her.  It was perfect for her to wear to mass as a chapel veil as well!

The other day I talked her into writing the pattern down!  So now she has asked me to share it with all of you!
