You are probably right on hiring a lawyer for Shelle, sometimes they do tend to drag their feet.

I bet they got many an email about this, enough for them to know for sure that the pattern is hers, and not that other person's.

I got the same response.
If they sold any patterns they should send payment to Shelle.
I wonder if she/we will ever know who did it....

They ask me for my phone number when I talked to them on the phone yesterday. I gave it to them, they said they wanted it in case they needed to call me back for anything   What else could they want to call me for?

If they call back I will tell them that she deserves the check from all the sales thus far from the pattern and I will ask them too if they could say who it was that they got the pattern from   Who know's they may say who it was.

UPDATE from my comments and phone calls:

I Just got off the phone from talking to them at DRG, the publishers
of this cape pattern. They as much as informed me that they are not going to pull this pattern, and that it isn't up to them to do so. Bull CRAP!!!

I ask to speak to someone higher up and they are going to have someone call me back.

All of you here need to call them too and voice your opinions and what you want them to do about this. Please, everyone give them a call and help Shelle out here. If we don't then our patterns will continue to be sold out there like this and we will never get these companies to do what they should do. It is they who need yo be responsible for their actions when the find a pattern being falsely claimed by someone else like this.

Here is the phone number to call. If anyone finds any one else that can be called to fix this don't hesitate to post them and their phone numbers here in this thread.

Thanks, everybody, from the bottom of my heart, for your support. I really appreciate it. This whole thing has made me feel a little sick. The designer that sold Annie's Attic the Cuffed Cape pattern is Ann White of bellcrochet.blogspot.com.  She sent me a (not-so-friendly) email and said she didn't copy my Shawler. She offered to send me the pattern to examine it, but I replied to her that she didn't need to do that. I can see from the photos and draw my own conclusions.
The design features are unique to my original Shawler.
It states on her blog that she used to work for Annie's Attic (DRG).  Michele, from DRG, emailed me and said We bought it in good faith from a well-known designer.
So I guess they don't intend to pull it. It's not right. Even if she didn't copy it, it's still way too close to my design and therefore shouldn't be out there. But, I suppose the crocheters out there will choose which pattern they prefer. I have tremendous faith in my loyal customers and crochet buddies. Hugs to you all!  
p.s. I know what I would do if the situation was reversed! I would have already pulled it - no doubt about it - even if it was purely coincidence!

I know that I will not buy any of her patterns.
Ann White of http://bellacrochet.blogspot.com/
http://www.etsy.com/shop/bellacrochet


And I will no longer buy from AA, there are to many other
reputable companies out there to buy from without ever giving AA
(or e-pattern central)
another look.

Here is a list of their (DRG) publications:
Annie's Attic (AnniesAttic.com)
ASN Publishing
Clotilde (Clotilde.com)
DRG (DRGNetwork.com)
DRG Wholesale (DRGwholesale.com)
EP Graphics (EPGraphics.com)
House of White Birches (WhiteBirches.com)
The Needlecraft Shop (NeedlecraftShop.com)
Strategic Fulfillment Group (StrategicFulfillment.com)
True Colors Publishing Design
It also covers all DRG Web sites, including but not limited to:

Magazine Web sites

CardMakerMagazine.com
CreativeKnittingMagazine.com
CrochetMagazine.com
Crochet-World.com
GoodOldDaysOnline.com

I have always catered to Leisure Arts and I guess
I will remain a customer to them exclusively. They are and
have always been very reputable and above board with their
standards, unlike DRG

I will never buy from them again!!
Nor will I ever sell any of MY work to them either.

I have nothing but PRAISE and GOOD things to say about Leisure Arts!!  They are a wonderful company. They published 4 books of my designs, and it was a wonderful experience working with them. I've never heard anything negative about Leisure Arts, Inc.

I'm sorry to hear that they are acting so unprofessionally.  Perhaps they wouldn't be that supportive of her if she hadn't been an previous employee?

Anyway, I stopped shopping with AA a long time ago.  I got really sick and tired of them revamping a technique, giving it a new name, then calling it an AA Original.  

Leisure Arts has always been Thumbs Up in my book.  And will continue to be!

Yes it is, but Shelle's was just released in a Leisure Arts book called The Cuffed Shawl and More.  They are just showing up in stores, but have been online for a while now.
