Crocheted Prayer Shawl

A prayer shawl can be very comforting to someone who is sick or having a hard time in life. There are prayer shawl ministries ( linked to a couple below) and Prayer Shawl Books available to help you get started in a prayer shawl ministry of your own.

Here is a prayer shawl I made.

The finished measurement of this shawl (excluding the fringe) is  14 ” by 53″.  Using a larger hook size and a soft yarn, makes this shawl warm, soft and comforting.

And here’s how I made it!


Linda’s Crocheted Prayer Shawl Directions:

Materials: Size I crochet hook ( or other size hook to get a somewhat loose and soft stitch.), I used  Caron Simply Soft Yarn Persimmon  for this shawl. The color is Persimmon 9754. I bought 2 – 6 ounce skeins and I have over half of one left, probably close to 3/4. That includes making the fringe.

Chain 59. DC is 4th chain from hook. DC across. (57 stitches, including the 1st 3 chain stitches) Chain 3, turn.

Dc in 2nd stitch, ch 3 counts as first DC. Chain 1, skip 1 DC, DC in next stitch. Repeat across. DC in last stitch. Ch. 3, turn.

Repeat rows until shawl reaches desired length. For the last row, DC in each stitch across. Fasten off.

The shawl in the picture has 82 rows. You can adjust the length for the person receiving it.

I added fringe to this one. Fringe is a personal choice, add if you like, leave it off if the person receiving it doesn’t like fringe.

  1. That’s pretty! I’ve never heard of a prayer shawl ministry, but I love to crochet. I tend to crochet in the winter (when it is cold), but it is hardly cold right now. LOL! Anyway, I’ll put this on my to-do list!

  2. That is very pretty and sweet Linda. My aunt gave me a prayer shawl after my 2nd-born baby was stillborn, it was very special and I wrapped myself in it at different times.

  7. Thank you so much for posting this! I’ve already made two and am working on a third. I’m sad that so many of my friends need prayer shawls but am happy that I can provide something to comfort them during times of need.
