I am trying to declutter and minimize my spending, so I would really prefer to NOT buy Evelyn Clark's leaf lace shawl. You might need to scrolls down to find it:
http://www.fibertrends.com/viewer/V4_shawls.html

Is anyone aware of a free pattern that is similar to it? Or is this pattern in book 1 or 2 of Barbara Walker's dictionaries?

So far I have found this:
http://knitting-and.com/wiki/Chair_Cover_11_-_Leaf_Pattern

Also, is it just me or is the edging for the leaf lace shawl the same as the edging for the flower basket shawl? It is here as well, you might need to scroll till you get to it:
http://www.fibertrends.com/viewer/V4_shawls.html

Thanks in advance to those who respond with ideas about alternatives.

Kiri is nice and free - not exactly like the Leaf Lace Shawl but still pretty. If you "search" the Completed Objects board you can see a few of them in different yarns.

Simple Knits 314 Triangle Shawl Listis sure to have something close also. Tip - the ones in bold are free.

Most lace patterns are made up from stitch patterns that are out there, you just have to put them together. Instead of searching for one you like, why not make one that is exactly what you want (although if you want a lace pattern maybe you could google free lace shawl knit pattern, or check out Knitty or knittingpatterncentral.com etc.?)?

Thanks, I like the pattern of the leaves in Evelyn Clark's leaf lace shawl. Do you know where I can find this?

There's an extensive stitch library at knittingfool.com and there are several stitch pattern books that can be found in libraries. Barbara Walker's, Vogue, Big Book of stitch patterns, etc.

I have looked through all of the publications that I have access to and online. I do not have access to a library with these types of books. That is why I am posting on this forum and asking people for advice.  Grin

On page 212 of Barbara Walker's "A Treasury of Knitting Patterns" (Schoolhouse Press, 1998 is the version I'm looking at) is a pattern called Openwork Leaf Pattern.  It is close but I'm not convinced it's exactly the same.  I also found the shawl pattern on another site, perhaps a bit cheaper, if you have to break down and buy it:  http://www.pacificwoolandfiber.com/Patterns.htm

Thanks for this information about the Barbara Walker Treasury, I really appreciate it  Grin.  I will go check mine. I did wind up breaking down and buying it. However, unfortunately, in the country where I am, it costs almost $10!  Shocked  Shocked  If I were in the US, I would have had no qualms about buying it and for the life of me I do not know why Fibertrends does not just do direct downloads, they would have far more customers than they do now, as many people who care about the environment (shipping lots of paper around is a)bad for trees and b) greatly increase Fibertrend's carbon footprint) and saving on shipping would buy it. Thank heavens both Interweave and Vogue are now allowing people to buy some patterns via the Internet.

Oh dude I agree completely. I just paid an ungodly amount of money for Fiddlesticks Knitting to ship TWO patterns from Canada, seriously it's just paper! If that's supposed to prevent customers dispersing the pattern by sending it free to all their friends electronically, hello SCANNER? well we do have far more options as knitters than 10 or 20 years ago...
