Amazing Grace Prayer Shawl

This pattern is near and dear to me… When Sandy was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, I made a Prayer Blanket in this color and a similar pattern. She kept the blanket with her all the time and snuggled in it when she was receiving chemo and having her surgeries…  When I decided to write a new pattern, I decided to make this Amazing Grace Prayer Shawl in pink to honor Breast Cancer Awareness!!    I hope you will make a few to donate and maybe even one for yourself.

There are 10 Amazing Grace Patterns to choose from and more to come very soon!!!
