At a first glance the symbols involve a decrease (stitches no 1 and 3 merge together) - a twisted stitch (knit through the back loop) and an yo.

I did three swatches and still not sure about the yarn.
From left to right:
1. Jaeggerspun Zephyr DK - it has a certain plastic feeling - somehow I don't like knitting with it.
2. RYC Silk Wool - beautiful yarn - everything looks great - not my colour and nothing else appeals to me from their colour card. Maybe bramble ?
3. Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool - a definitely no-no for this pattern. Too thin and tweedy.
So I'm still looking for a nice DK merino-silk blend.
Any suggestions more then welcomed.
