  6. Neptune’s Tears by Anastasia Roberts (400+ yds): This is one for the more experienced crocheter. The stitches themselves aren’t that complex, but the pattern is more of a loose recipe than an explicit set of instructions. Beautiful though! free crochet shawl patterns fast crochet shawls crescent batwing triangle shawl patterns
  7. Wingspan Crochet Shawl by Carole Marie (306-328 yds): UPDATE: This pattern is no longer free, but is available for purchase.

    These patterns are beautiful.
    I would really appreciate if you could help me locate a pattern that was in a WORKBASKET magazine in the early to mid 70′s. It is a shell pattern worked in triple crochet. The shawl was worn on the tv show Three’s Company by the character Mrs Roper.
