My knitting group is making prayer shawls for charity and this pattern would be perfect. It has a nice pattern to it and looks a bit more detailed than some of the other patterns. It should work up quickly and I am sure whoever receives this will appreciate the well wishes crocheted into it, Thank you for the pattern.

I love this clean and simple modern take on the shawl. The more angular lines and the bright color are indicative of that. To keep it that way I think I'll forgo the tassel. I could really get into this one with blue jeans and a t-shirt. This one is such a trend setter!

I enjoyed this pattern and with the painted yarn I used, it is absolutely gorgeous.
