Prayer and healing

I just finished the prayer shawl for my friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

It is my deepest wish that this small token can serve as a source of comfort on her road to recovery. For others who feel the need to express themselves through prayer for a friend or family member in a similar situation, the pattern is simple and consists of knitting every row, except on the even rows with YOs as the second and second to last stitch and around the center stitch. The YOs serve as an increase every other row - and yes, it does look curvy until you take it off the needles and find that what you thought was the bottom is actually the center top. This version was done using a single skein of Lion Brand Homespun (in Colonial) on size 17 US circulars.
