In this video, authors Janet Bristow and Victoria Cole-Galo explain the Prayer Shawl movement and introduce their new book, The Prayer Shawl Companion. There is a misconception that prayer shawls are tied to a specific religious group, but anyone can create a shawl for a friend or loved one. Prayer shawls can comfort during hard times or can be used to celebrate joyous events, such as a birth or wedding.
You will find 38 wonderful shawl patterns in this new book to inspire and guide you through the process of creating your own prayer shawl. There are patterns for all skill levels donated by professional knitwear designers, including Kaffe Fasset and Nicky Epstein.
Create your own prayer shawl and share your stories and photos in the gallery. For every pink prayer shawl uploaded to the Make it Pink gallery in October, Taunton Books will donate $10 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, up to $1,000!
After you make this project, show off your work to other members!
