Am I missing something? I cannot see where they put the two pieces together? Is it slip stitched, single crochet or just overcast together in some way? I've read this over and over and do not see it?

OK...I finally saw where to begin the second half of this shawl. I did it in two pieces without paying attention to #1 of second half. Now that I am done! So mine will be crocheted together with a middle seam...darn!

This is the perfect gift for a survivor of breast cancer or to anyone that would like to show their support. We have been pretty lucky in my family tree. There has been no one diagnosed with breast cancer and we certainly count our blessings. We did loose our Mother to lung cancer though.

This is really a very pretty prayer shawl. I was reading over the directions and I can assume (and you know what they say about assuming) that this design is made a little differently than the typical shawl. After completing the first side you work on the opposite side for the second half. It could be easy enough.

I love this prayer shawl! It is so beautiful, and I am looking forward to making one, or two or three! I love that the pattern uses Caron yarn also, because this is my favorite yarn to use. There are so many color options, you could use another soft color available and it would be just as amazing.

Such a lovely prayer shawl. I love the color pink. This shawl also pays tribute to a worthy organization the Pink Ribbon campaign. I have several relatives and friends that have fought hard against the evil C word. Some won the battle and others did not. I am a supporter of the worthy cause.

I agree that this is a beautiful shawl! It's a beautiful pattern with a gentle pink yarn. I've had several close relatives who have fought breast cancer valiantly and like you Hippie Chick some of those brave ones have lost and a few have won! This shawl is an awesome tribute to such and important battle!!!

This is a lovely shawl and wiuld be perfect to make for a fundraiser.

I have tried to print this many times to no avail...can you share the secret...I would really like to add this to the prayer shawls I'm making for our church.

Hi there, I would suggest you highlight the text you'd like to print, then right click and select print. That should let you print only what you have highlighted. :) Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

http// == ibbonscarfcrochet brings up a great ribbon, but not a tuitorial for THIS ribbon, any help is appreciated!! )


i have received two responses about my message below, both advised links takes me to a quite nice actual pink ribbon prayer shawl, but neither link brought me to one for this one. I was hoping to see a tutorial for THIS prayer shawl....I have printed the other one, wish I had started it instead, but I loved THIS one. It didn't come out QUITE like this, but I think the recipient will still love it. and thanks for the link that took me to the other shawl, it's going to be a big hit too!! be blessed!!

I wish there was a video to see the first edging part, i am unsure what TR means, is it a triple crochet? thanks!! (I am making this for one of my Bosom Buddies
