Hello everyone,

I got the lace weight Shimmers yarn from knit picks.. I have done lots of searches on a shrug/poncho/wrap pattern that I can tackle, but haven't had any luck. I'm looking for lacey patterns, could you please recommend one that a newbie like me can handle?

I will be taking a trip soon and want to take a simple project with me on the plane, any recommendations for that?

TIA!  Smiley

http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTido.html this is rated "piquant" but she says the lace pattern is simple...

http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTcozy.html is "tangy" (which is below piquant)

piquant drop stitch stole: http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring04/PATTfrill.html

knitty has more, but since you're going to have to check yarn comparisons, i thought i'd stop  there.

If you happen to have the book "Last Minute Kintted Gifts" the "Airy Scarf" pattern is super simple and you could probably just CO more stitches and make it a wrap.

I made the airy scarf with the yarn in the book (I even found the pink, which is now discontinued   Embarrassed) and it's very comfy.  I've been eyeballing that Shimmer yarn for a few more, as the Kid Silk is super pricy.  Let me know if it's any good for lacy knitting.
