Ok people I'm stuck in a rut with knitting so I have decided to DA DA DAAAAAA *GASP!!* try lace knitting Shocked *cue fainting woman and crying child*

Soooo I was wondering if anyone had and shawl/scarf patterns that are very easy yet look hard as hell to the non knitter...people like my mother who will most likely get this lace knitting project seeing as I do not like lacy things unless they are thongs and that is another story for another day.

I digress...

I really love the the spidery, flowery, wingy type things (you know what I mean) so please if you know of any good patterns (only ones with pictures please!) that are easy please tell me!
Also any tips for this would be wonderful!

Thank you much
CW Smiley

it seems that everyone who made the swallowtail shawl from interweave was very happy with it.  i think there was a KAL for it in the KAL board. .. or the razor cami  Cool

might not be as "lacy " as you are looking for , but this is my first go at anything "lacy like" so I went a simpler root and followed this pattern Cheesy

I think Knitty's Branching Out is an acceptable elegant, yet beautiful & impressive pattern.  It's also versatile for different yarn types & weights.  http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTbranchingout.html

There is a free pattern for a lacy thong. Here is a link to the knitalong which has a few finished ones as well as a link to the pattern.

I knit the Harlot's Snowdrop Shawl for my first large lace project and loved it.  It's an easy knit but I've gotten a million and one compliments in it Grin

How about Branching Out from Knitty? Also River by Rowan is pretty simple - it was my first lace pattern and looks really nice finished - the only thing is keeping track of all the yarn overs!

Knitty's Branching Out was my first lace project and then I followed up with Liesel. Both are really pretty.

Molly's Headband (a few pages into the pdf) is a good little bit of lace to work up. It works up easily in a heavier weight yarn than most lace. You can get comfortable with the stitches, and learn whether you enjoy lace knitting or not (I love it). Instant gratification lace.
