Variations on a Theme

I was thinking about how to teach a friend of mine the basics of charting a lace design for a shawl, and I decided to take a simple motif and manipulate it to work in two shawl shapes. The first is the most basic; a rectangle. The second is a simple triangle from the point up. I did not put a selvage on these charts, but the Oak Leaf edging I posted previously would work nicely on both. Happy knitting!

I actually have this very motif on my needles right now, as a scarf in pale blue cashmere lace-weight. I'll post a picture of it later.
