THIS PATTERN IS BEING EDITED.
Paula’s Crochet Prayer Shawl Pattern is an open weave design and is great to throw around the shoulders when a bit chilly. It is worked from the side across.
This is a great pattern to use to make prayer shawls and donate to charity or to practice making one for yourself.
You can use any yarn you like with this one as long as it is a medium worsted weight yarn (category 4).
