This beginner triangle shawl pattern is easy to make smaller or larger. Simply crochet a repeat of R2 an even number of times - this will allow the edging to work for the shawl. This is crocheted in a lighter weight yarn, so the shawl is also lighter weight when you are wearing it. It is not heavy like a blanket. This simple shawl is an everyday shawl. Something you can make and wear for comfort, with your cozy pants, or just to keep the chill off when you are sitting on your back deck enjoying a cup of coffee (or glass of your favorite wine). This shawl will also work well as a Prayer Shawl or for donation purposes. I designed this slightly larger because I am larger myself (a petite 3X) and I wanted a shawl I could wear out on my back deck! My sister, Kelley, is modelling the shawl for the photos and she is much daintier and a size Small . It is an oversized shawl for her.

If you don't have the time to work up a whole crochet shawl, you can still make something meaningful for someone in need. We're introducing the Pocket Prayer Shawl, just for you! These cloths with a cross pattern made from the popcorn stitch are great to carry around as a reminder of someone's healing thoughts. Because they're small, the pocket prayer shawl should be fast to crochet, and you could probably finish over a lunch hour or two. Give someone the gift of comfort with these pocket sized shawls.
Prayer Shawl We all have friends in need. Sometimes the friend just needs a hug or an encouraging chat over a cup of coffee. Most of us benefit from a reprieve from the daily grind and having a friend to laugh with can go a long way. But sometimes a friend needs more – when that friend is walking through a dark, sad, or scary time; what many of us call “the valley.” Obviously, the person experiencing a trial is the one with the difficulty – but sometimes knowing how to be a good friend can be hard too. We don’t always know what to say. We don’t want to be trite, or too serious. We want to be there, but not over-bearing. Some of us also have a tendency to shirk away from very emotional situations. A tangible gift has a powerful impact and offering something personal can help with healing. I love giving a prayer shawl that represents everything I wish, hope, and pray for that individual in the midst of trouble. And not merely a shawl you would find in a store or in a pattern book, but a personalized crocheted fabric that wraps a friend in symbolism. The symbols you choose will depend on your beliefs and the beliefs of the person receiving the shawl. The purpose isn’t religious proselytizing; it’s blessing someone going through a hard time.
