thanks for all your compliments!  Smiley

no i didn't make up the pattern myself, i got it from a knitting book (don't remember the title).
here it is - i tried to translate it the best i could:

yarn: any wool, ca. 100m/50g,(here it says 400 g but it took me about 500g)
needle size: 4,5mm (i used 5mm)
finished size: long edge - 160cm, short edge - 87,5cm (came out quite longer with me)
gauge: 12 st = 6,5cm

leaf pattern:
1: k2, ssk, k4, k2tog, *yo, k1, yo, ssk, k7, k2tog, repeat from *, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k4, k2tog, k2
2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th row: purl, first and last two st k
3: k2, ssk, k2, k2tog, k1, *2x(yo, k1), ssk, k5, k2tog, k1, repeat from *, 2x(yo, k1), ssk, k2, k2tog, k2
5: k2, ssk, k2tog, k2, *yo, k1, yo, k2 ssk, k3, k2tog, k2, repeat from *, yo, k1, yo, k2, ssk, k2tog, k2
7: k2, ssk, k2tog, k1, *yo, k1, yo, k3, ssk, k1, k2tog, k3, repeat from *, 2x(yo, k1), ssk, k2tog, k2
9. k2, ssk, k2tog, *yo, k1, yo, k4, sl-k2tog-psso, k4, repeat from *, yo, k1, yo, 2x(k2tog), k2
10: k2, p2tog, purl to last four st, p2tog, k2
repeat rows 1-10

lace edge:
CO 4 st
1: k2, yo, k2
2nd, 4th and 6th row: k
3: k3, yo, k2
5: k2, yo, k2tog, yo, k2
7: k3, yo, k2tog, k2
8: BO four st , k4
repeat rows 1-8

start off by CO 297 st, purl on 'wrong side' except k first and last two st. continue with leaf pattern.
when you have only 7 st left on your needle:
1: k2, ssk, k1, k2tog, k2
2: k2, p3, k2
3:k2, sl-k2tog-psso, k2
4: k2, p1, k2
5: k2tog, k1, k2tog
6: k1, p1, k1
7: sl-k2tog-psso
secure remaining yarn. knit lace edge in appropiate size (it was about 4,3m with me) and sew to edges of shawl.

hope you can understand it!  Undecided

Thank you so much for posting the pattern for this. I am getting married later this year and having an authentic as possible victorian wedding. I am kind of new to knitting, so I couldn't do any really complicated lace patterns, but I can do this! It's beautiful!
