I made a Christening Blanket from a pattern for a Christening set. I think it would make a great prayer shawl. Around the four edges are an anchor and a heart, symbolizing hope and love. I changed the anchor pattern a little to make it into a cross, and I added that to the other two symbols, around the edges. the center is stockinette stitch. I used a needle that was too thick for my loose knitting and sport weight yarn. The pattern doesn't show the blanket, just the Baby Boy's Christening Outfit. I highly recommend this pattern. I'm attaching a photo of my blanket, and a link to the free pattern.
