Crochet Romantic Prayer Shawl Free Pattern: The Inspiration
I love crocheting romantic and feminine shawls. Over the past Summer I released quite a few Vintage Crochet tutorials. I love these vintage crochet projects so much! This Edwardian Era Wrap I released last week features a lovely rectangle shape and a very lacy stitch you may enjoy. The Edwardian Rose Wrap from a few weeks ago is also a lovely shawl that could be made as a prayer shawl too.
Prayer shawls are perfect gifts to give to someone who you think needs to feel the arms and love of God. Crocheting a prayer shawl is not only therapeutic for you to make, it’s also a blessing for the person receiving it. Last year I crocheted a prayer shawl that I really enjoyed making. Indeed, this prayer wrap featured a simple C2C pattern and very beautiful edging too.
A little while ago I also added this vintage lavender wrap to the Vintage Crochet Series. This wrap features a lovely shell stitch and a frilly edging too. It was made with very soft yarn too ( Feels Like Butta by Lion Brand yarns).
Crochet Romantic Prayer Shawl Free Pattern: The Yarn
For this project I used Ice Cream yarn by Lion Brand. This yarn is very soft and comes in 100 gram balls, as well as much bigger skeins. For this project I used two of the 100 gram balls. I used shade Strawberry. It’s a very beautiful shade of pink and white. The yarn itself is considered a light 3/DK yarn, and is very soft too.
I don’t think I have ever used this yarn for a tutorial before. Indeed, I do love Lion Brand yarns as a rule. The Polina Half Circle Shawl is made using Lion Brand Mandala Baby yarn in shade Narnia. I do love Mandala Baby yarn so much! This yarn is perfect for shawls; The Valentina Shawl is also crocheted with this yarn.
I also love Lion Brand’s Coboo yarn. Indeed, I recently crocheted this feminine bow with Coboo yarn recently. This bamboo/cotton yarn is perfect for many projects, such as this Patchwork Cardigan or this two toned lacy scrunchie.
Let me know if you enjoy working with Lion Brand yarns as much as I do.
