Autumn Comfort Prayer Shawl Knitted - Easy
I designed this pattern to be quick, easy and cosy. It only took a couple of hours to knit up and only uses knit & purl stitches so no expertise is required. To keep the autumnal feel pick a yarn in autumn shades. Don’t forget if you want to convert any yarn go to Yarndex
The shawl is reversible so can be worn either way. I designed the shaping so that it fits snugly around the shoulders without being a long triangle.
