Trinity Prayer Shawl - Free Pattern

I recently completed a prayer shawl pattern, The Trinity Shawl. I wanted to create a warm, triangular wrap with picot edging, crocheted in the treble stitch, and worked with a lovely self-striping yarn. I chose a subtle rainbow pallet for the yarn. I love its muted tones and symbolism.
