Prayer shawls provide comfort to people experiencing difficult times. The beginner-friendly stitch pattern in the Maricana Lace Prayer Shawl creates a beautiful rectangular shawl with gentle waves and eyelets.

This pattern was originally designed for Prayer Shawls at Rush, a drive to contribute prayer shawls to patients at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.
