I do not know if this will help you, as I am not sure what you have in mind exacty, but woolgathered has an excellent neckwarmer with fishtail lace, I love the lace because it isn't *too* holey but is still quite pretty and easy, I have taken that lace and began on a sweater using it for the hem and sleeve cuffs. I recommend it anyway.
Here is the link to the info on it: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=23713.0

Also, I do believe there is the start of a knitalong that deals with a lacy shawl, you might want to take a look at that as well. She has a few patterns to various shawls with a lacey appearance that might suit you.

I hope that helps. Smiley

The most basic pattern I know is called Cellular Stitch.

It goes:
Multiple of 2 stiches.

1. k1 *yo, k2 tog* k1.
2. purl.

Repeat forever! I just started lace too, and this helps work up to harder things.


Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

I also like the Spiderweb Capelet from Stitch n Bitch Nation.  Fairly easy (once you look at the errata page) and quick--plus it's just cute!   Smiley
