The Knit Wits, a prayer shawl ministry, the Novato United Methodist Church are knitting Prayer Pockets to give to the kids on Knit Wit Sunday, yes we get to actually knit in church on this day. These are little "pockets" they can put a small note pad and a pencil to write thoughts or prayers.
The pattern for this is actually two Prayer Squares and whip stitching together. The handle is supposed to be crocheted. However, since I forgot how to crochet, I learned to make an i-cord.
The pattern for this is quick and easy. If you know how to knit and purl, you can knit this.
