Jospeh's Shawl

                                               Genesis 37:3 (KJV)
Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he
(Joseph) was the son of his old age; and he (Israel)  made him
(Joseph) a coat of many colours.

The different colors and textures of the various yarns
makes an interesting shawl. Every Joseph shawl
is unique & a surprise!

If you are using sport weight yarn or baby wt. yarn use
2 strands held together.

Shawl's meansument 60" long X 20" wide
This shawl is knitted on the long side which will measure 60",
you need to measure as you knit along and Bind off at 20"

The reason " I " use white between each row of color is because I hope my shawls share God light, My thinking is the white is a reflections of God's Light & Love...

I always CO with size 13 needles, then switch over to size 11 for
working the shawl pattern.

I CO 51 sts, place a marker, CO 51 more sts, place another
marker, CO last 51 sts... Reason for placing markers is simply
this, if I drop a stitch, "I Know" there are 51 st's between
each marker so I know from which section I dropped it to pick
it back up.

This is my favorite combination of stitches for Joseph's Shawl.

11 Needles, CO 153

Color yarn:
Row's 1-3:  k across
Row's 4-5:  k3,  p3 across
Row's 6-8:  p across

Swith to white yarn
Row 9:  k across
Row 10: p across

Repeat these row's until your shawl measures 20" Bind off

Here's another fun idea, if you belong to a "Prayer Shawl"
group, maybe someone could start a shawl (knit or crochet),
and pass it off to one of your members to work on for a week's
time, doing her own thing, and praying over each st as she
works along, then when she returns the shawl at your next
meeting date, the next lady takes it, add's her yarn and
special touch, & pattern to it, and so on and so forth, until
it finally is returned to the origninal one who started it,
she can either finish the shawl, or take her turn then pass
it along.

Each member does their own pattern idea's, add's some of their
own yarn, and prayers to the shawl. Each shawl is completly
"UNIQUE" and fun to recieve

if you don't want to hand over your shawl for a weeks time,
how about passing it around the table, let all the members of
your Prayer Shawl group lay their hands on it and pray over
it & if you want they each can knit or crochet a row of two
on it, The possabilities are endless here, Most important
thing is PRAYER & to enjoy your talent as your Blessing others

  1. Jean, thanks for putting that into a pattern, it is "YOUNIQUE" for sure. I do them, but each one is different and I have never paid attention to a pattern and/or stitch, just put all the yarn in a grocery bag and used whatever came up in my hand, is that what you call flying by the seat of your pants? So many people have asked for a pattern, thanks to you, now there is one. Peace be with you, Jan in TN

  2. I can't wait to make this as I have a lot of leftover yarn from various projects. I think once it's started I will take it to my prayer shawl group and let each one knit a row or two. We are always on the lookout for new patterns. Thanks!
