The classic stitches featured in Orisons are repeated over and over like a simple prayer. Crochet prayer shawls are a wonderful way to enjoy the meditative benefits of crochet while creating a lovely gift for a friend. The trapezoid shape sits comfortably on the shoulders and offers various options for wearing the shawl. Laceweight curly mohair yarn creates an incredibly light, surprisingly warm wrap.
