Free Knitting Pattern: Prayer Shawl / Healing Shawl

Lion Brand® Homespun®
Pattern #: 20281-K
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.

Prayer Shawl / Healing Shawl

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

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 needle/hook size will affect the finished size and thickness of the shawl, but there isn’t one "right" way.

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 fringe, or use hairspray or fray check.


Knit Version
Cast on 63 stitches or any multiple of three, such as 54, 57, or 60.
First row
Knit 3, purl 3 to the end of the row.
Repeated row
Turn and knit the purl stitches and purl the knit stitches.

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.

Prayer Shawl / Healing Shawl Reviewed by Claudette Staab on 2013-09-09 *****
I made this shawl for my daughter to give a hug from me as she was dealing with her 8 year olds cancer. I just finished another for a friend with metastic breast cancer that is now stage 4 bone cancer. It gave me such peace knitting & praying for them
