...the long promised and never appearing Centered Cross Prayer Shawl pattern...
...this prayer shawl is super easy to make...the only tricky part is making sure that you have enough yarn to finish after the cross...
...the cross should rest center back when the shawl is worn over the shoulders...
...it's much the same as other bordered prayer shawls that I've made...
...I used 1 large skein of Red Heart and one skein of some fuzzy yarn that were in the bin at the Prayer Shawl Ministry at Church...sorry I can't be more specific...and I only had these two little bits left over when I was done...I love it when that happens...
...and so without further ado...
