One of my presents for this Holiday Season was a full set of Barbara Walker's "A Treasury of Knitting Patterns".
I spent hours flipping through the pages and pages of pictures.
In the first book (the blue one, with a "Frosted Flower" pattern on the cover) I have found an interesting lace stitch that I have not seen anywhere else.
It is on page 236, Barbara called it a "Shower Stitch", and suggested that it has a French origin. I could not resist to use it for one of my shawls right away!
Here how it looks in my interpretation:
It it a true lace: yarn over happen on both sides of the knitted piece. If you want to try it yourself, here is the chart:
