can anyone point me towards one/ some patterns for a rectangular wrap/ shawl/ stole that use laceweight yarn?

i want to knit one for  my mum for xmas, but can't find a really nice pattern that's not triangular or circular.

in particular i'd love a peacock feathers patterned one...

have you seen the Candle Flame Shawl at Knitpicks? It's free, rectangular aand looks quite a bit like peacock feathers. I'm seriously considering it for my mom for christmas or her birthday.


Chuck Norris does not knit. He bangs the table, and the shockwaves force the yarn to create clothing.

the lace pattern is pretty but the garter edging is kind of boring... *sigh*

but thankyou! it is top of my list right now (second being eunny jang's print'o'the wave stole).

any other suggestions, anyone?

(or any suggestions on how to replace the garter stitch border?)

Here's a list of rectangular shawls that someone made on their blog, both free and to purchase:
Hope you find something you like Smiley

I know that elann.com has plenty of free patterns, many are stoles/wraps if I'm not mistaken. And knittingpatterncentral.com has a huge list you could look thru. I'd be more specific, but I'm in kind of a hurry. Sorry, but I hope this helps.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

This is a stole in a wavy pattern I especially like.  It's simple. 


It's not strictly lace weight; uses a variety of weights & textures. 

Good luck, mwyn

I don't know if you want to limit the search to free patterns, but if you're willing to purchase something, there are two excellent books I can recommend: A Gathering of Lace, by Meg Swanson, and Folk Shawls, by Cheryl Oberle.  Both have a large variety of lace shawls, in a wide range of skill levels.

I knit Eunny's Print of the Wave stole (and will post pictures one day, maybe this weekend, I have to set up some sort of online picture account and I am a procrastinator) and really enjoyed it...the border though, seemed to take longer than the body of the stole, but was well worth the efforts. 

I just picked up some Skacel Merino in black for Pink Lemon Twist's Moon Dance ($6 for the pdf), which I think is so pretty!  Just have to finish some other stuff first...  I'm working on her Leda stole too but, while the body looks pretty, it is a bit repetitive.  Gathering of Lace really does have some beauties in it, particularly the sampler stole, since you are looking for rectangular. 

oh, the link to Pink Lemon Twist... http://pinklemontwist.blogspot.com/2005/02/patterns-for-sale.html
