Aunt Jo's Prayer Shawl


I have become a bit of a yarn snob, and usually do not like to use acrylic yarns - especially for garments.  However, this needed to be machine washable, and I was pleasantly surprised at how it turned out.

The yarn is James Brett Marble Chunky.  I used a large hook and worked in the front loop only . . . and this gave a nice drape to the fabric. The beautiful, self-striping reds and corals made it hard to give away the final product!

This pattern is suitable for beginners . . . it is a rectangle of single crochets, with a simple ruffle of trebles.
