This October Shawl is very simple. The color is laid back and unassuming. Can be done in a different color that you fancy.

Please provide a photograph of the item.

Hi camillard, The photo should be appearing now. Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Thanks for letting me know the pattern was on the last couple pages of free downloadable book. I just copy and pasted it to AbiWord and I can now access it from my desktop.

I agree with the others, it is frustrating to go through the trouble of downloading a book only to find it is predominately knitting and the last one in the book is the one you want. I usually cut and paste a pattern as a Word document, but not this one - couldn't c/p.

Agree with others; frustrating to go through all of the mechanics to find you have a knitting book and the pattern you are looking for is the last. I usually cut and paste patterns when I don't want all of the ones in a book, but can't c/p this one.

Yeah download the knitting book and it is the last pattern,wonder if it would be possible to make it without the sleeves? It's not a true shawl if it has sleeves! At least in my opinion.

Same as the others. The link does not take you to the pattern.

I downloaded the book and it is the last project in the free book.

The link takes you to where you can download a free book. The pattern is a crochet pattern although all the other items in the book are knit. It's the very last pattern in the book. What surprised me was that the shawl has sleeves. Can't see that in the picture above.

The same thing is happening to me, the link is wrong.

The same is happening to me, the link is wrong.

I would like the directions to the Crochet October Shawl. To click on get directions the page goes to free knitting. I do not knit. How do I get this pattern?
