Knitted lace curtains
I am about to take on a project which some people might call ambitious, but most would probably call stupid. I would like to make curtains for my kitchen. And my bedroom. And possibly my family room.
I have the pattern from the Mason-Dixon Knitting book and another that I found somewhere on the web. I'm not wild about either. I would like for it to be fairly quick, meaning a simple lace pattern.
Any ideas?

Here's a diamond pattern one.

Here's an idea of a pattern, you could probably work out fairly easily. I think the pattern here is for a knitting machine.

Thanks again. I think I am going to try the one from KnitPicks. At least for the kitchen. After I posted this I had a "I'm so silly" moment and figured that I coudl use any lace pattern and just adapt it to the size I want. So I have a few more ideas to bat around, too.
Thought this one would look good. After all, a curtain could be just a big old scarf!

I think that would make a lovely curtain! I was going to suggest checking out a stitch dictionary from the library and just finding a stitch pattern you like.
