3 Free Knitted Prayer Shawl Patterns: Knit One for Someone in Need
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. Knitted 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.
To honor this expression of goodwill, we created this beautiful free eBook: 3 Free Prayer Shawl Patterns for Reflection and Inspiration. Start with the easy pattern “Simple Prayer Shawl.” The eyelet border adds interest without making the shawl complicated. The “Lacy Prayer Shawl” is a variation of the first, but with an added column of eyelets built into the center of the knitted shawl pattern. The third, “Comfort Shawl,” is still a quick knit, but has even more embellishments built in. Prayer shawl patterns are a great way to express your emotions while enhancing your basic knitting skills, and we hope you enjoy all three!
