UPDATE: my uncle died in 2017! Rest in peace, Uncle Dick!

I designed this prayer shawl for my 83 yo uncle (and also my godfather) who is slowly succumbing to cancer. *** $1 from every pattern sold will go to the American Cancer Society to eradicate this disease that has claimed many of my family members (including my first husband at the age of 31).***

Uncle Dick is always cold … so I created this shawl that is extra thick and cozy but in an easy-care fiber (wool/acrylic blend). The garter and cable panel are competely reversible, making this easy to wear.

The shawl is wide enough for a fold down collar to keep the neck warm while also covering the shoulders and down to the small of the back.

A quick knit that is a welcome bit of warmth for men, women or children!
