FO - Prayer for Comfort Shawl
Hi all! this is another crochet project. Hope you'll forgive me for posting it here.

I've ventured into this other fiber hobby as a way to crank out prayer shawls faster. My church just started a new ministry, and I've heard that crocheting is quicker (although it does use more yarn). So, I had a bit of help from a couple of gals on Ravelry and YouTube'd the rest.

Here's the pattern booklet that I bought at Joann's:

I had fallen in love with this project (the picture from the book...Amazon's website):

And here's my finished project...

I started on 4/27 and finished today (5/7).

I used a little under four skeins of Bernat Satin (the colorway is Sable).

The yarn is soft and very warm. It was a little bit thready...which was not super easy for a novice crocheter like myself, but I didn't find myself doing battle, if you know what I mean.

All in all, a pretty easy project except for the edging, which I attribute to my lack of practice and not the pattern.

Thanks for looking and bearing with my non-knitting project on this board. :wink:

Surprisingly, the project did go quickly! I really wanted to kick it out fast.

Thanks for the compliments on my hair. For years, I fought the curl. Don't know why. Now I wash and go. No extra product. Just me and the South's humidity. :thumbsup:

That is really pretty Nathalie! I love the collar look - makes it more unique!

You did a great job - I have SUCH an issue with crochet unless it is a very small (and very basic) project. I HATE HATE HATE counting, especially when there are alot of stitches....and as such, I tend to either add or lose sts in the rows. I tried to make a baby blanket a few years ago with a speed hook and 3 strands of yarn held together. The project went really fast, BUT the blanket ended up shaped like an hourglass! Oh well, my girl cat likes it.......... :teehee:

Thanks, Jan! It's natural...wash and go. I quit fighting the curl years ago...figured if I was gonna live in the South all of my life, might as well embrace them.
