Filet Prayer Cloth (5"sq)

I designed and made this pattern last night. It worked up really fast into a 5 inch square with #10 crochet cotton thread and my handy, dandy Bates #5 steel hook (you can also use your trusty #7 Boye steel hook).

The Prayer Shawl Ministry at church is in it's infancy. So far I've made 3 shawls and they've already been given to those in need. I'm just about finished with the 4th shawl and my fingers are tired! Yes, I've recruited others to help with the crocheting, but until we have a solid foundation and extra shawls already made, we need something for right now.

This pattern can be worked up in an evening instead of the few days it takes for a shawl.

The Pastor's at church already have a Prayer Cloth Ministry in place. For those of you not familiar with this - it corresponds with *Acts 19:12. Anointed/blessed/prayed over pieces of cloth are taken to the sick.

This FREE pattern is available now. You can email me at InspiredCrochet (at) and I will send it out to you in PDF format.

* 12so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them. ACTS 19:12 NIV

  2. This is just what I am looking for as our pastor will be taking sick leave to deal with cancer! Some guys just don't do prayer shawls!
