Healing Prayer Shawl – Crochet Pattern

171-7144_IMG
This is my own version of a Healing Prayer Shawl. I made this shawl a couple of weeks ago for someone who I thought may need the comfort of a shawl, post surgery. The shawl was gratefully accepted and has proved it’s worth already. Unfortunately I forgot to photograph my first shawl and so here it is, I’ve made it again. healing1

Sorry, no matter how much I try, I cannot figure out this directions as written. If I do as written I get a bunch of shells, so could you please let me know what I am doing wrong, where do all the dc's go? As written they all go into one ch and then I get shells.
Thanks for any help,
Gloria

I have tried to do this 15 times today, and it Never looks like the picture, I guess I need more accurate instructions.

The Sunroom said...

Gloria,
Sorry for any frustrating confusion. I have gone back and followed my own instructions and realise they were not as crystal clear as they should have been. I have now amended the pattern and hopefully clarified any probles you may have had.

I am also posting the following link for anyone who may find it useful.

Thank you Gloria for pointing this out and I hope you can now get on with your shawl.

I love this pattern. My aunt taught me the basic of crocheting when I was a little girl but I never really worked any patterns until this summer. Thank you for such a simple pattern that is fun and easy to follow.

I love this pattern. I am a crafter, mostly into jewelry right now, but I was wondering about using these for donations. I wanted to see if I could get in contact with you about using them. Please reply to gemjam@live.com thank you!

Thank you for the "Healing Prayer Shawl" pattern. I look forward to making it for a Christmas gift. A friend showed me how to do something similar to this about 30 years ago but we didn't have the written instructions. She has since passed away. I've looked for years for the written patten and TODAY I found it.

Merry Christmas,
Kathy

It is stylish and fashionable in look.
Hope to see more stylish and fashionable jewelry of your collection.

Laura said...

LOL! And here I am again!
I have a *very* basic knowledge of crochet so perhaps this one would be a good start for me too!

((Hugs))

Just wanted to say I have made about 25 of these to give away and love this pattern. Many of which we took to Peru this year.

Anne said...

This pattern is super easy, however, I must have twisted mine at the beginning because the starting chain is not actually at the bottom of the shawl. It has the right shape so I am going to continue. I'm using Caron Simply Soft and it looks good and in my head I have already made this in Lion Brand homespun as well as a variety of other yarns. I see Christmas gifts !!!

Our Church has a group that makes Prayer Shawls. I have joined the group and would love to make this to give for someone who needs a shawl. I just wanted to know if I need permission to use this pattern.

The Sunroom said...

Nanceann,

Thank you for the king courtesy of asking, but no you do not need permission. Please feel free to use the pattern.

Have a great day & best wishes:-)

I work in the healing rooms in the Milwaukee area. Would like your permission to give these to those who need the feeling of being wrapped in His loving arms. I will start as soon as I get an ok. Lynette

Thanks for letting me print your instructions. Am trying to figure out why it doesn't look like yours. Paula R.

Hi! Love this shawl but I'm not understanding how there is a head-hole and an open "V" in the front. Does one wrap the shawl around oneself or "put it on"??????

Thanks,
Susan :)
