Pattern Central
Hi,
I need suggestions. I started a lace weight, very open shawl/scarf for my niece to wear at her wedding. I have frogged the thing 15+ times and I am weary with the whole process. The yarn weight is like knitting with hair and I do not know if that is my problem or knot. I have knit many other lace patterns using charts and written directions and never had this problem.

I would like suggestions for a very pretty, open lace, quick pattern which is not so simple that I am bored but definitely not like the pattern I bought at the LYS. It is called Fame Trend. I look forward to your suggestions.

Thanks

I went on line to try and find a picture or illustration of this shawl, or its pattern.

The only "Fame Trend" I can find is a kind of yarn made by Marks & Kattens. Is there another possible name for the pattern?

The pattern is 09112 Fame Trend Lace Knit Shawl Marks & Kattens. I am only using their pattern, my yarn ball band is hiding but it is a very fine yarn. Thanks for your help.

A quick search on Ravelry (free to join) turned up several with Fame Trend yarn including this one. It may help in doing lace work to insert a lifeline. It at least keeps frogging to a minimum and helps preserve sanity.
That's a wonderful idea for your niece's wedding. Good luck with it.

Isn't it beautiful. I might go insane on that one. Mine will be smaller or non-existent. Thanks for your help.
