Shawl wrapped up

I'm a little late, but here is the update on Prayer Shawls I made in 2017:

My first finish was this teal and white color combination that I had only just started back in 2016, but got it completed last year:

I also made two shawls from what has become my favorite pattern, the One Skein Wrap.  The first one was a combination of white with pink:

The second one was this magenta/cranberry colored one that I blogged about here.

This next one was made up of rows of fans.  I think I may have to dig out that pattern and make another one.

With Spring and Summer coming, I wanted to make a more lightweight lacy shawl, so I made this one:

With all the open areas in this pattern, it was not surprising that it only took two skeins instead of the usual three.

This next one was a bit more masculine. It's based on the granny square pattern, but done in rows. 


Long color variations in the yarn from white to purple made for an interesting finished look in this next one:

Not as many shawls in 2017 as there were in previous years.  I developed some wrist pain, so I had to cut back on how long I could crochet in one sitting, and also take some time off for it to rest. 

My Prayer Shawl group continues to be going strong.  In only four years we have created and given away over 1000 shawls!

  1. I didn't realize all the different patterns that you use! They all look difficult! I'm sure they are treasured by whoever is lucky enough to get one.

    1. Thanks, Rosemary. We often hear back from the recipients of the shawls who tell us how much they enjoy them.
