I nearly winged all of these -- that's the great thing about crochet, in my opinion. 

This one was based roughly on http://web.archive.org/web/20010424164757/http://www.cei.net/~vchisam/groovy/64-135.html

Veeery easy to do, except for the love knots that I really winged. Cheapie acrylic yarn, baby sport weight.

Victorian-era baby hooded cape, enlarged for me -- roughly based on this, with arm pass-through holes:  http://members.optusnet.com.au/we2/victoriancape.html. Made from Grignasco merino wool, discounted from Smiley's Yarns.com.  A really nice yarn, but took quite a lot of those little balls to make this cape.

My summer poncho, styled to be shorter in the front so I could have my hands unperturbed, but have the look of a nice triangle shawl in the back. I either wear it up gathered around the neck, or down.  I wore it with a big floppy summer hat and got compliments all day -- even from the bus driver!  Yarn:  mercerized cotton in fingering weight.  Stitch: like the Delta Mesh stitch, but only DC.

<<<Edited to remove broken image...web address no longer exists Sad>>>

My Newlywed Shawl attempt in Patons Grace, a ribbon tape I got cheap from Smiley's Yarns.com -- color: Flamingo.  In retrospect the color is a bit too wild for me, so I've only used it once.  But it was fun to do the Delta Crochet!  I followed the bellaonline pattern.

My friend called this my very Easter scarf.  Made from shimmery Red Heart baby yarn.  Then with a pink satin ribbon treaded along the top.

<<<Edited to remove broken image...web address no longer exists Sad>>>
Lastly, this is Reynold's Cantata cotton with 15% nylon for a bit of spring.  Based on Seraphina's really AWESOME and fun pattern.  I did get lost along the way and of course, winged it.  Suitable for this batwing scarf!  http://www.angelfire.com/journal2/donisfuff/croshawl.html

Victorial Baby's Cape: http://members.optusnet.com.au/we2/victoriancape.html

Unfortunately, I didn't write down a pattern or anything, I just changed it as I went along, by constantly measuring against myself.  Start at the collar and make it big enough for you, then follow the pattern but make everything longer for you. It went pretty easily, since shawls don't need to be really fitted. JUST MAKE SURE YOU INCREASE EVENLY ACROSS THE WHOLE WORK. Think of it in sections divided by the shells, and increase in the MIDDLE consistently of each section as you go across.

Crocheting is easier! I crocheted for years before I had the ability to knit!  What do other ppl who do both think -- which is easier, crochet or knit?

My favorite is the one with the hood from the modified baby pattern, but they are all awesom!  Grin  How did you adjust the pattern so it would be an adult size?   Huh

Thank you!  The baby cape is my favorite too.  Since I was crocheting, basically I could eye-measure as I went along against my body.  Whatever the pattern called for, I did it, but wider and longer.  Then when it was about elbow-length from the collar, I did it in sections to allow for the arm-opening.  After going in 4 separate sections for enough to insert the arm through (4-5"), I rejoined all 4 by simply crocheting straight across all 4 pieces.  With the shell pattern, it worked up pretty fast, even on that very baby weight yarn (Grignasco merino gold).
