The Prayer Shawl Journal & Guidebook
In times of stress and sorrow and even celebrations, we look for ways to show we care and give support. What better way than to wrap those concerned in a prayer shawl.
This book is great for the novice knitter or crocheter with basic instructions on stitches, yarns and techniques. It’s also helpful for the expert crafter with detailed patterns and tips. The 10 lovely step-by-step shawl patterns are designed for all skill levels. Each pattern is accompanied by beautiful rich, color photos of the shawls.
In addition, this book serves as an inspirational journal. Designed with a month-by-month Prayer Shawl Year section, there are also journal pages for writing personal entries. To encourage peace and relaxation, there are inspirational quotes throughout the book. To assist with yarn projects, there are also pages to list project ideas, record current and past knit/crochet projects, and keep track of notions and yarns on hand.
This charming paperback book features 30 color photographs and 70 drawings to enhance the prayer shawl creating experience. The patterns, tips and techniques are presented in an easy-to-follow user-friendly format.
