If you are not entirely familiar with how to make a prayer shawl, you may use one of the pattern links provided on our site or you may check out the Prayer Shawl Ministry website http://www.shawlministry.com for the original knitted and crochet Prayer Shawl patterns and the ministry’s origins. It does not matter whether you prefer to knit, crochet, or sew a lap quilt, the idea is to give a hand-made garment to surround one with your blessings and love!
Finished size of a shawl should be between 26″- 30″ wide x 60″ in length.
Finished size of a lapghan should be approximately 30” wide x 40” to 48” in length.
While some of the patterns below are for scarves or afghans or may include multiple colors, they are provided only as a starting point for you to use.
