Lace patter in garter stitch

I am going to start a Faroese shawl and wonder if anyone knows of a site that has simple lace patterns in garter stitch.  Or do you have a pattern you could share with me.   Thanks

Aladdin's Carpet

well - a while back I joined the yahoo group for the Mystery Stole #2 from Melanie at PinkLemonTwist. (she also wrote the pattern for Leda's Dream that I finished recently - well, my version of it anyway)

As usual I used a different yarn and a different sized needle - so I truncated the pattern by about 150 rows or so. 8 foot long is really sufficient.

since I really can't call the result 'Scheherazade' since it it only BASED on 'Scheherazade', I'm calling it Aladdin's Carpet.

I used US #8 needles (5mm) and jaggerspun heather 2/8 yarn in 'burgandy'. will try for some pictures tonight or tomorrow. Got to get it blocked as it is a wedding gift for Saturday morning. (Not that I work under pressure or cut deadlines close!)

Verbal abuse

I just looked in the chat room & was verbally abused by one of our members, this is not the kind of thing that I expect from our group.
