Prayer shawls provide comfort, warmth and spiritual healing to the recipient. They are always given to someone who is going or has gone through some rough times, be it physical, emotional or spiritual.

They are not gender specific as you can also crochet a beautiful comfort lapghan or throw for a man.

Choose your favorite colors and give someone a gift of comfort and peace.

The project can be worked in either solid colors or a variegated yarn.

This pattern can easily be modified with different weights of yarn (though I would recommend medium “worsted weight” or bulky weight). Please remember to use the recommended hook size for the yarn of your choice.

The pattern used to make these shawls is a very simple one and one which I have used to make a baby blanket and an afghan. I like this pattern because it uses the V-stitch (dc + dc) and it just keeps on repeating itself. No complicated rows to memorize … after you set up your foundation chain and first row … it just repeats itself. You can also use this same stitch to make a warm & bulky scarf.

Note: I do not use the chain between the 2 dc’s (dc +ch+ dc) because I don’t like the fabric to be too lacy, however, nothing is set in stone and you can modify it as you wish and to your preference.

Skill level: beginner to intermediate

Optional: you can add fringes to the ends or a scalloped edging as a border

Thank you for choosing this pattern. Enjoy!!
