Perhaps you have heard about prayer shawl groups at your church or other places in your community. These people get together and make these shawls, which are intended to go to people in need of comfort, whether on the loss of a loved one, a hospitalization, or a job loss. Or they can be a sign of sharing in celebration, like for a marriage or a new baby. Whatever the occasion, prayer shawls are about more than the yarn and knitting or crocheting techniques that go into them - and you don't even need a complex pattern, as we're about to show you!
In this app, you'll see two video episodes featuring Kim Carlson, who has been leading prayer shawl groups at the churches she's attended. She demonstrates the process of making one, then shows you how you can start up your own group. Plus, try out two fun shawl patterns. We hope you'll enjoy Prayer Shawls.
