Prayer shawls provide comfort, warmth and spiritual healing to the recipient. They are always given to someone who is going through or has gone through some difficult 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.

This shawl pattern could also be appropriate in dark colors for men undergoing long term care/chemo therapy; after surgery rehab, etc. Every person needs healing, warmth and comfort.

Choose your favorite colors and give someone a gift of comfort and peace. This is also a great beginner’s project or prayer shawl ministry project.

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

Experiment with various hook sizes (5.5mm, 6.5mm, 8.0mm) to get your desired look in the fabric.
Needle sizes were inserted in error in the description above - please ignore these.

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

Stitches used: Double crochet, chain

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

Thank you for choosing this pattern. Enjoy!!
