Crocheted in a wattle stitch pattern, this craftivism shawl project is easy to modify into a scarf or an afghan, making a great handmade gift for anyone. The super bulky yarn works up quickly, and can be done in endless color combinations.

This shawl was designed while drawing on the tradition of prayer shawls. The easy wattle-stitch pattern, comprised of three basic stitches, is quickly memorized and wonderfully meditative. Create one for yourself or several as gifts.
