Fishtail Lace Knitting Pattern - Great For Beginner Lace

I love the look of this Fishtail Lace.  I can see fishtail upward and downward depending on which column I focus on.  I actually really enjoyed knitting a hat of this pattern.  After a few rows I was able to knit without even looking at the pattern. 

You can see the Fishtail Hat I made with it here.
