Looking for easy lace pattern

Can someone please recommend an easy knit lace scarf pattern. This will be my first venture into lace. I bought some yarn last spring at a knitting fair. It came with a pattern, however there is no picture so I have nothing to go on. I know there are a lot of lace knitters here, so I am hoping that one of you can let me know of a good beginner pattern. Thanks.

Here’s an easy one from knitty.com. Its called "branching out"
It’s quite easy and uses any size needle or yarn. Not to mention it makes a beautiful scarf.

I’ve never done any real lace knitting either, but there are some patterns here: http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/lace.php

Many knitters who have made it have told me that it’s a really good beginner lace project.

Also, here are photos of other knitters’ versions of the scarf, so you can see what it looks like in other yarns and colors.

Thanks very much Brookeln. That is a very pretty pattern and it is so interesting to see it made in so many different yarns.
