I've been working on a self-made lace pattern exploring the difference between right and left slanting decreases and how they affect the look of a pattern. I worked 34 rows before I bound it off after deciding that continuing with a color change was not what I wanted to do. (I tried it for 7 rows and it didn't "look" right, not to mention the fact that the yarn didn't appear to be the same weight as the original.)
I'm unsure what to call the pattern as I'm not sure what exactly it looks like, almost like a strange vine on lattice work. Suggestions welcome!
