Prayer shawls can be knitted for anyone in need of comfort or well-wishes. The idea is that the knitter sends love and good wishes with every stitch she knits, literally knitting her good will, prayers, and hopes into the prayer shawl. Prayer shawl patterns are usually easy to knit, this is so that the knitter can concentrate on the thoughts being poured into the stitches rather than a complicated knitting pattern.
In our new free eBook, 3 Free Prayer Shawl Patterns: Easy Knitted Shawl Patterns for Reflection and Inspiration
, we've gathered three knit shawl patterns for you, two easy and one that's just a tad more challenging.
The first one, Simple Prayer Shawl, is an easy-as-pie pattern with an eyelet border. The second, Lacy Prayer Shawl, is a variation of the first, with a column of eyelets up the center of the shawl, too. The third, Comfort Shawl, adds a little more embellishment but is still simple and quick to knit.
If you know someone who needs a pick-me-up, make them a prayer shawl. You'll both get so much out of the experience.
