finding the right shawl pattern

Hello everyone!

I picked up a couple hanks of lovely rusty-red mohair while in Copenhagen recently, and want to make a triangular shawl with it, something lacey, but am having a heck of a time finding an appropriate pattern. I've never made a shawl or done anything lacey, so this is really a new area of knitting that I'm exploring.

The yarn itself is two 50 gram hanks, about 100 meters each, according to the tags. I don't know what weight to call it--worsted at most, sockweight at least...maybe sportweight? The tags don't say at all, in any language.

I'm still hunting around, but I'd greatly appreciate any recommendations and advice you have to share!
