On Fridays, I share a link blast on Twitter and Facebook to get you excited about crocheting all weekend! In keeping with the #FlashbackFriday meme, I’m sharing patterns that were first released at least 12 months ago.
Comfort and prayer shawls are a great way to wrap someone in handmade love. These patterns are perfect for a loved one going through a difficult time or for donation to a variety of charities.
