Three Rivers Crochet is starting a Crochet Along(CAL) for the Lost Souls Skull Shawl which is a free pattern on Ravelry. During a crochet along everyone works on the same pattern at the same time. They share their thoughts, progress and snarls.
If you are interested you can join the Cal (not everyone at 3RC is doing the shawl since we have a just do what you want policy. )
You should be able to download the pattern even if you don't belong to Ravelry (Why don't you?)
