NEED THE SWEET PEA CROCHET SHAWL PATTERN!!!

Well I totally forgot that in my webtravels I came across this Gorgeous Shawl. I am thinking if I can Get that pattern ( Crochet, not knit) I could do this secretly for my daughter. It is The " Sweet Pea Crocheted Shawl ". I can show you a Pic in close up of this but there are small variences in design.Many have created this shawl in many colors. I like that web type Look at the colore of this gorgeous closeup here...

I can't afford to purchase the pattern ( spent all my cash at my LYS) if ANYONE Knows If I can have a FREE copy of the pattern just to make ONE shawl?
All I know is that it uses only single crochet , uses 7 skeins of dk yarn and a size 5.5mm hook ( Not sure what that is in the crochet Letter size) so a freebie has to be out there somewhere!!
Can you help me? I figure if I start it now, when my daughter gets married in years I will be Finished! But I actually do crochet much much faster than I knit, but I knit because I use less yarn and I like the turn of the cloth, and the designs. But I grew up with crochet around me. My grandmother was from Italy and she did the most intricate doilies and bedspreads with thread and IN HER HEAD, she did not use a paper pattern.. and I am named after Grandma Grace so she taught me crochet. I enjoy ALL forms of needlework! How about you!

I don't know if the first comment i typed posted because the window messed up. Anywho, if you go to barnes and noble and bring a note book you can copy the pattern from "the happy hooker" by debbie stoller. I made this shawl for my mom and it was a easy, fun project.
