I started this and let it sit for a while because I had trouble with joining the three sections. But once they were joined everything went well. It was an easy knit - but the joining was perplexing to me.
I used 900 yards of Araucania Chaiten 100% silk yarn on a US #2 needle (yeah I knit loosely - the yarn suggests using a US 6 - so even lace at a 4 would probably be normal).
This is a free pattern in Ravelry if anyone's interested.
