This pretty braided openwork lace knitting stitch pattern is relatively subtle as laces go.  Once you have mastered the two main decreases (k2tog and sl1, k1, psso) you will find it very easy to do and I thinkyou will agree that the end result is rather effective.  It is knitted over a multiple of 2 stitches (so any even number really) and is a 4 row repeating pattern.
