I seen this pattern. It is not a full granny square. http// == e-box-stitch-shawl.html

I would like to know if there is a prayer shaw pattern that is half of a granny square? If there is one, please send it to me. Thank you.

Look up corner to corner afghan. There are several sites that have the pattern for free and it is simple and very lovely. It can be made any width or length you want. Also you get different looks by either using several colors which makes it striped, or use variegated and get another look. Hope you give it a try. Once you get it started, there is no need to have to follow a pattern. :)
