I recently caught a Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman on GMC, and have been watching it pretty much every day since! I noticed that a lot of the shawls on that show were crocheted, and they are so pretty! I have googled and clicked until my fingers cramped, and searched every obscure link I could find, to no avail, so I am hoping someone here, may have some ideas....does anyone watch that show, and know where I might find patterns? I went through CPC, and didn't see what I was looking for........help?

You can find beautiful shawl patterns everywhere. Leisure arts published many pretty patterns, also Annie's Attic. Booklets are available through many online stores

Thank you for your responses...maybe I didn't explain myself clearly. I looked at Crochet Pattern Central (CPC) and also searched for the shawls at vintage shawl websites, and tried historical crochet shawl patterns............I KNOW there are many lovely shawl patterns available, I was hoping to find some similar to the ones shown on Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman.....Again, thank you, I will keep looking.

Here's the link for the patterns page at The Costumer's Manifesto. This site is utterly amazing; so full of links for all manner of costuming interests. Another option is to try searching for patterns at ravelry. Good luck!

It might be easier if you could find a picture to share of what you are looking for. I haven't seen that show in about 10 years...and I just can't picture what you're after. Are they triangles, rectangles, lacey, solid, thick and cozy, or...welll you know what I mean?

Remember to that a lot of the shawls are adaptable by the type of yarn you use. The same pattern for the Saraphina shawl for example can be made from lace weight or bulkey weight and the results will be totally different.

You're most welcome! I probably should have also posted a warning to tie a string around your ankle and appoint a designated 'spotter', whose sole job would be to yank you back to real time after an hour or so. There's just SO much to see at Costumer's Manifesto. Bunny Trail Heaven!:devil

have you searched the Antique Pattern Library for 1860s crochet patterns? I never watched Dr Quinn but if they were using period costume it's likely there will be something similar amongst all those wonderful antique patterns :)

I too have been enjoying the series and noticed how many shawls are crocheted. I'm keen to find a pattern from season five.

This is an absolute gorgeous shawl!! I too would love to find this pattern. I have been looking but nothing yet. They have to come from somewhere.

I found this pattern. It is similiar. I bought it anyways through paypal and was an instant download. http://www.tradebit....crochet-pattern Maybe we should be looking under vintage chair back covers as they are sometimes used for shawl patterns.

Wow, this costume manifesto website is awesome! I'm even looking at stuff that I would normally have no interest in. I somehow got on a page about cross-dresssing and even a link for "stripper's clothing". Kind of cool and weird at the same time.

The pattern you picked is awesome. Had you not found one I was going to suggest looking at CPC in the doily section, most pineapple doilies are symmetrical so you could work it in rows, not rounds, turning each row and making half a "doily" but with worsted yarn.

I have been trying to find the very same thing for at least 5 years. I have thought about still framing scenes from the DVD to try and deconstruct some of the patterns. There is a website dedicated fan page for dr. quinn but I have never seen anything posted there. I would think that somewhere in Hollywood someone knows who made those shawls and what they were based on. The other thing I may try is the Weldon's Practical Needlework series that has been re-published by Interweave Press. Post if you find anything yourself and I will too!
