Prayer Shawl / Healing Shawl Reviewed by Beth Johnson on 2015-03-27 *****
I just finished my first healing/prayer shawl of this pattern. I plan to give it to a family member recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Instead of the fringe I used Lori Bennett's picot edging pattern idea. It is lovely. So nice to have others' input to work from for alternatives. The Homespun yarn took a bit of getting used to but after finishing this shawl I will definitely consider using it again as the color blending makes such a nice pattern in the work.

I have made several of these to give away. Each person I gave one too appreciated it. Pattern works up easily. No need to get the gauge and the number of stitches right. Will definitely make this one again.

I use this pattern for the prayer shawl ministry that I am involved in. I use 4 skiens of yarn as we prefer a wider shawl. I start with a chain of 56. It's a easy and beautiful pattern. I have used this one many times and will continue to use this pattern.

I made this in Jan. 2012 for my husband's grandma and used LB Homespun - Mixed Berries. It turned out lovely. The pattern was super easy and it truly is a great gift idea. I tied the fringe to prevent fraying.

I have made approximately 40 of these shawls for friends,hospice family members and for bazaars, in various colors. It is an easy pattern to do while watching TV. To alleviate the fuzzy fringe, I crochet a row or two of the shell stitch at the ends instead.

I made this for a friend for her 50th wedding anniversary. I wish you could have heard how thrilled she was. It was easy to make - took hardly any time - and although I didn't relish hand tying knots in each piece of fringe, it did lend an interesting look to the bottom of the shawl. I love your Homespun yarn and the colors I can choose from, but wish there was a way that it didn't "frizz" like it does. How about working on that?
Thanks again.

Prayer Shawl / Healing Shawl Reviewed by Lori Barrett on 2011-05-19 ****
I made my first one with the fringe, but it was problematic, so after that I used a picot edging instead. Everyone that sees them likes it better that way, no fringe to tangle in washer, or catch on anything. I did [sc, ch 5, slip st(picot) in 3rd ch from hook, ch 2, skip 2 st, sc],

I have made 2 of these - one using Homespun Fiesta and one with Homespun Painted Desert. They both turned out beautifully and were very easy to make. Since there is essentially no counting, this is a wonderful project to work on while watching TV. A word about the fringe - on the first, I used 2-12 inch pieces of yarn in every stitch to result in 4 pieces of 6 inch fringe in each stitch but I thought this looked awfully heavy. In the second one, I used the same length of fringe but used 3 pieces in every other stitch, resulting in 6 - 6 inch fringes in every other stitch. I personally liked this look and feel better. My only complaint was that I, like some other reviewers, encountered numerous faults in the yarn skeins and though this is a soft and luxurious yarn, it's tendency to fray and fluff made it necessary to tie a knot in each piece of fringe - not that difficult to do but it made it impossible to get all of the fringe exactly the same length. Also, I found I had to add more rows to the shawl to make it as long as the picture so it took a full 3 skeins plus part of a 4th to get all of my fringe.

I have made several of these shawls. I have always used the Homespun yarn. I have done some with the fringe and some without. I added a shell edging to one. I love this pattern-- easy and works up fast. It makes an affordable gift. I have given it to new moms(they rave about it as a nursing cover up in winter), elderly loved ones(as lap robes or shawls) and for friends who are undergoing treatments. The nurses at hospitals always ask where they got it. They say they wish they had them to pass out to cancer patients. Every recipient has said it was such a thoughtful and welcome gift.
