What is a Prayer Shawl? Throughout the ages, shawls have come to symbolize shelter, peace and spiritual sustenance. Since the inception of the Prayer Shawl Ministry in 1998, the members of this ecumenical organization have lovingly donated their time and talents by creating hand-knitted and crocheted shawls for those in need. What started as a grass-roots movement has quickly grown into an international cause, with countless numbers of shawls being given to grateful recipients around the globe.

The Ministry's message of caring is simple, universal and enduring. And we have seen time and again that the creation and presentation of a prayer shawl, like all acts of generosity, enriches the giver as well as the recipient.

NOTES:

Because different Knitting Ministry groups and individuals make prayer shawls in their own ways, there is a great deal of variation. This pattern gives a sample of how to make a knit or crocheted shawl. Your individual choices in yarn and hook size will affect the finished size and thickness of the shawl, but there isn’t one "right" way.

Because crochet uses more yarn than knit, a crochet shawl will be a bit smaller than a knit one made with the same number of yarn skeins. To make a larger one, start with a longer chain and use an additional skein.

Editor’s Note: When creating fringe using Homespun please note that because of the texture of the yarn the fringe will fray when cut. If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends, knit or crochet a loop fringe, or use hairspray or fray check.


SHAWL:
Loosely chain about 43 stitches.
First row
Half-double crochet in third chain from hook and in each chain across.
Repeated row
Chain 2, turn. Half-double crochet in each half-double crochet across.

Work about 2½ skeins in this pattern. Use the rest of the yarn for fringe, which can be from 3 inches to 9 inches long. Knot the ends of the fringes to keep the yarn from frizzing.
