I had already made a tea shawl from a pattern out of Amazing Crochet Lace and I loved the outcome, and I wanted to make my own tea shawl without a pattern.  Behold my cotton tea shawl:

Here's an action shot:

And finally, here's a very unprofessional and guesstimated pattern to get the general idea of how it went:

ch 6, sl st to connect to first ch.
ch 2, 9 dc in circle formed by connected chain, sl st to connect
sc in each dc, sl st to connect
(ch 5, sk 1 sc, sl st in next sc) around
(ch 5, sl st in hole created by chains in previous round) around
(ch 8, sl st in hole created by chains in previous round) around
It looks like for the next round, 7 dc in first hole, ch 2, 2 dc in next hole, ch 2, repeat from 7 dc around
(ch 6, sl st in every 3rd or so st)
(ch 7, sl st in each hole)
ch 3, 4 tc in hole, (ch 2, sc in next hole, ch 2, 5 tc in next hole) around
(ch 7, sl st in middle of group of 5 tc, chain 7, sl st in sc)
(ch 10, sl st in each hole) around
(4 tc in each hole) around
(ch 5, sc between each group of 4 tc)
(ch 6, sl st in each hole)
(ch 6, 2 dc in each hole)
Again, not sure exactly what this next section is, but I'm going with what it looks like:
(ch 3, sl st in hole, ch 3, *3 dc, 2 tc, 3 dc* in next hole) repeat around
(ch 2, sl st in between every two tc, *ch 2, tc* x4) around
now 3 more rows of the mesh, aka (ch 6, sl st in hole made from chains in last row) around
I don't mean to give up or anything, but I'm not sure of the last rows, but it's mostly 7 dc's in each hole, then the mesh rows, 4 dc+2 tc+ 4 dc in each mesh hole. I finished with the mesh holes, sc'd in each chain around, then finished with tassels at the end.
(Ch 10, 2 sc in each chain, 2 sc in sc of last row.)

It probably won't make sense, so for that I am very very mucho sorry.

thank you!  i wish i could've been more specific on the pattern, but it was all freehand, lots of taking apart and restarting a row.  the outcome was totally worth the time it took.
