Patterns & Links

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   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.
