HELLO!~ I'm looking for a Bolero Shrug Pattern like this one.
http://www.etsy.com/listing/83148035/knit-shrug-bolero-jacket-with-cable

Or even something like this, but I like the attached cowl like the one above

I found one that MIGHT do... but it's not exactly that and there for not exactly what I want. x.x

I don't mind paying for a decent pattern, but I would like one for free.

Thank you so much!~

So I searched 'crochet turtleneck shrug pattern' in Google and got a BUNCH of knitting patterns. I was scrolling through pictures and stuff when I cam across this:
http://cafeknittergallery.blogspot.com/2007/12/turtleneck-shrug.html

I instantly thought to make a tube for the cowl/turtleneck then split it to make two long scarf like sections then sew them part way up the sides to create the sleeves.

Or I was thinking that you make two long scarf like bits, then once they're long enough crochet them together in a tube to create the neck.

I think that would be the best bet. But I would really like to do the cabling (I think that's what it's called? Where it looks all twisty...) on the arms, or ribs.

What do you think?

I found this pattern, http://www.etsy.com/listing/68366061/transformer-4in1-crochet-pattern-pdf
There isn't any cable on it though  Undecided

Oh! I found this http://lvlindabelinda.blogspot.com/2010/08/bolero-sweater-with-high-collar-free.html
You can take the idea, make ribs with cables instead of the shell motif and shorten the torso.
