Sadie Sunshine Sampler Prayer Shawl (Knit pattern)


This pattern was designed in memory of my sweet 17 month old granddaughter, Sadie, who we lost to Cancer on December 21, 2012.  I have always crocheted and decided to teach myself to knit.  As I progressed up one side of this shawl, I decided to do each section in a different, simple pattern.  At the same time I was praying and remembering Sadie and others who are suffering from cancer or a loss, I was learning - so I decided to dedicate this shawl to her and record the pattern for use as a prayer shawl.

Please feel free to use and share this pattern, but when you stitch it, please have someone in mind and give it freely to them for comfort in their time of need.
