Prayer Shawl / Healing Shawl

Lion Brand® Homespun®


5 V-Sts and 7 rows = 5˝ [14 cm]
Gauge Swatch: 6"w x 5˝" h [5.25 cm x 14 cm] When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


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.

Prayer Shawl / Healing Shawl Reviewed by Gthamban on 2015-04-04 ****
I tried this pattern. It didn't come out right. Because when I skipped 2 chains in between two V stitches, I got more stitches than the foundation stitches.
I skipped 3 stitches in between two V stitches, then the number of stitches came out right.
