This is my January Prayer Shawl. I made it with leftover skeins of Red Heart Super Saver yarn purchased for one of my granddaughter’s afghans. (A side note: Red Heart yarn has come a long way! This yarn is now much softer and very easy to work with.)
I used the Naomi pattern, which I’ve talked about many times. The pattern by Carolyn Christmas Designs can be purchased for a very modest price and is very versatile to any type of yarn. Previously I made this pattern using Simply Soft Yarn by Caron, but using worsted weight yarn worked much better because the yarn isn’t as “drapey.” Plus it makes a much warmer shawl for the cold months of winter.
The shawl pattern calls for 80 rows, and that’s what I did using a size J hook. I did modify the border because my yarn stash was running low. Typically the border is nine rows wide, but I stopped at four and it looks just fine.
My February project will be a man’s prayer shawl, which I’m making in black Red Heart Super Saver worsted weight. I’m using a repeat pattern row of my own design which I’ll include when I post finished pictures.
Stay warm and happy crocheting!
