    Great book for those who crochet!

    "The Crotchet Prayer Shawl Companion" is a book that not only tells you about the prayer shawl ministry, but will help you begin one of your own. Whether you want to give one to someone who is ill or has a specific need, or to someone who wants one for their own prayer life, this book is for you. Throughout the book are instructions for the shawls along with beautiful color photographs of the finished product. The reader is given direction in choosing the right color, fiber, setting, and decorations for the chosen person; and is encouraged to pray over everything from the beginning to the giving. Each pattern includes the skill level and a personal story or two. There are also some wonderful tools in the back of the book like: how to start a prayer shawl ministry, crocheting abbreviations, yarn weight, and colors and symbology.


    This book is not only wonderful for patterns and information, but also for giving thoughtful gifts. My favorite patterns are: "Power of Three Shawl," "Royal Leaf Shawl," "Double Hug Shawl," and "Crowns of Glory Shawl." I really liked the pictures and stories. This is a ministry just about anyone can be involved in. If you crochet, or know someone who does, this book is for you. I want to thank Net Galley and the publisher for the copy I read on my Nook. I plan to buy a copy for myself and for others.

    Crocheters will enjoy this!

    The testimonials were worth the price of the book as a motivator to attempt the prayer shawl ministry. I purchased the book, not having anyone in particular to receive a shawl. I finished a project and laid it aside. One morning I was praying for guidance for whom should receive the shawl and immediately a name came to mind. This person was ill and since her illness is hereditary(unknown to her) her children were ill also. She took the shawl with her when the children were having tests run and she said it "kept her centered". As I crocheted I prayed for the recipient-whomever it might be. As the testimonies emphasize in the book-prayer touches lives.

    I recommend this book to anyone interested in making prayer shawls.

    The Crocheted Prayer Shawl Companion is a nice book. There are a variety of patterns, some with yarn and some with crochet thread. The pictures of the shawls are great and instructions seem to be clear. I am working on my first one. Many of the patterns are on the skill level easy, with several skill level intermediate. The prayers and short stories add to the making of a prayer shawl.
