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.
Prayer Shawl Directions
- 2 skeins Lion Brand Homespun yarn – your choice of colors
- 1-13 size needle
- 1-15 size needle
Cast on 40 stitches.
- Knit from 13 to 15 needle back and forth until you have used both skeins of yarn.

To make fringe, wrap yarn around a cereal box 40 times and clip twice after tying together.
Make fringe before casting on for shawl.
