Prayer Shawl Pattern

This patten was a free crochet shawl wrap I downloaded.   I was looking for something fast and simple.   This is it!!    Instead of crocheting and changing colors, I simply got a variegated yarn and repeated Rows 2 and 3.     If you have time and want to change colors, it makes a very interesting pattern.    For me quick and easy for the trick so add this one to your list of "must crochet".    You'll love it and the prayer shawl will bring warmth and comfort to the one who receives it.

Crochet Wrap
Row two - starts with beginning chain string from first row on right    I used a variegated yarn and repeated Rows 2 & 3 until it was 20 inches wide.    It's worked lengthwise.    Love this simple and easy pattern.   You can look up the photo of the one that uses different colors on the link below.    But for a "make it easy" day, just use one color or a variegated.
