Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Prayer shawls are a popular project for gift and charity knitting, and this collection of simple, easy-to-knit shawls and wraps contains a variety of styles, from lightweight lace to cozy Aran. Most of the projects use worsted-weight yarn and are quick to knit. Knitting basics are covered in an appendix, and some advanced techniques, such as starting a Möbius shawl, are extensively illustrated. [Leisure Arts has also published a companion volume, Crocheted Prayer Shawls.]
