A shawl is a fashionable as well as functional article of clothing, worn loosely over the shoulders, upper body and arms, and at times over the head like a scarf . It is usually in the shape of a rectangle a square or a triangle.

Prayer Shawls


Prayer Shawls/ Healing Shawls

What is a Prayer Shawl?

A prayer shawl , is a shawl that is created by hand and prayed over as it is being made. Knowing that shawl has been prayed over, for a healing or any other blessing , I believe gives the recipient comfort and peace.

Over the ages of time, shawls have come to give people a sense of comfort, shelter, and peace .

Since the onset of the Prayer Shawl Ministry in 1998, the members of this organization have donated their time and talents as well as love, by creating hand-knitted and crocheted shawls for those in need.

What started as a small movement has quickly grown into an international cause, with a very large amount of shawls being given to grateful recipients around the globe.

What makes the Contralto Shawl free knit pattern so great is that it is both stylish and functional!

This shawl will keep you toasty, and its large pockets are big enough to store glasses, keys or a wallet, and can also keep your hands warm...

Great for when it just cool enough to need a little something light.
