Symmetry in Silk
The pattern recommends 1,200 yards of laceweight tussah silk yarn (approx 3,750 yards per pound).
From the book:
Even if you don’t knit this scarf, the decrease used at each end of each motif deserves attention. Eugen uses a decrease that he found in an old German book… it makes a beautifully centered single eyelet - silken symmetry.
