Healing Prayer Shawl Directions

Do you like to knit? Are you someone who doesn’t have a lot of time because of young children or a career? I have the perfect avenue for you to provide something for a congregant who is healing from illness or healing from the death of a loved one.

We have several women who knit the Healing Prayer Shawls, but they can’t all be available to keep our supplies filled. Whether you are a man or a woman, all knitters are welcome. You can use leftover yarns that might make a lovely shawl or use your favorite colors and patterns to be extra creative. We welcome all artists. We do have a simple pattern but it is not necessary if you have a favorite. Your uniqueness will make it that much more special.

Welcome Aboard!
