Does anyone know where I can find free instructions for a crochet shawl like one of these?

Oh wow! I can't be of much help but I had to respond - those are amazing! I think I may actually have to break down and buy one if no one reponds to your plea. (yes I'll be checking!) The second one is my fave.

Sometimes I can figure out a pattern (I mean something similar - wouldn't want to steal) if I look at the item long enough but these are a little beyond me.  Good luck! Ebay is so dangerous! Wink

I can't help you with where to find the patterns, sorry. Cry
The first one is some what of a spin on the Newlywed shawl and there are a couple threads on Craftser on how to make that one.  I'm not the greatest Crocheter, so I can't even think about the adjustments.  Sorry.

Knitwit- I urge you to buy the patterns.  I bought the Poncho pattern and loved it!  Not the poncho, but the pattern...  Totally my fault.  I was unsure if I'd where a poncho to begin with, but loved this one.  I picked horrible yarn to make it with.  In the end it looked like I was wearing a green tank cover.  Someday, I'll go back to it.  But she's great with explaining the stitches and questions.

Ditto what Swellgirl said. The patterns are explained so well and the cost is really quite nominal. I bought her "Newlywed" shawl and it was so easy for me to do (since I had to learn). There is a thread in this section about yarns to use for the "Newlywed" shawl http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=79;action=display;threadid=2669 which might be helpful for the first one.

Thanks for the encouragement swellgirl and greenchick, It's good to know people are happy with the patterns. I thought about it last night (instead of sleeping!) and woke up thinking I was going to buy some of those patterns. It does seem worth it. I am off to ebay now...

But before I go, I'm going to say that the crochet-ers really need ourselves a stitch-n-bitch type book.

Speaking as a knitter and one who is very new to crochet, I wholeheartedly agree. I just bought the Vouge Crochet Scarves book so maybe I will add crochetting to the repetoire.

Okay, so I went ahead and bought the poncho pattern and have started it, so far so good. If it looks halfway decent I will post pics. I will give away one clue as to what makes it look so interesting...it's Tunisian Crochet! I don't know if this is of interest to anyone, but I just learned the stitch and wanted to share!

I am a long time knitter and recent convert to crochet and didn't know this stitch but I will say it's sort of in between knit and crochet and I would recommend this for the knitters who can't grasp crochet or the crocheters scared of knitting. It is a crochet stitch, but you work it on the needle, like knitting. very cool. Faster than knitting too.

Anyway, here are some links with instructions:

I do apologize!  I guess my brain temporarily left me!  Here's the link I intended to post:
