This is a nice dainty pattern. I have two samples, just to show you what this looks like in different yarns. It is kind of hard to tell from the picture I guess :-). You are free to use any yarn you like of course, because if you like how it looks, then it is the right yarn. A swatch in the yarn you are thinking about will help you decide if you like how it looks or not. Me, I probably wouldn't use too heavy a yarn for this stitch, because I like how delicate it looks in a fine weight yarn. Even if you are new to lacy stitches, you can do this one. Don't be afraid to try, even if you have never knit lace before. Also, I would consider adding a few extra stitches for the sides, since this curls just a bit as all stockinette-y stitches do.
Sl 2-K1-P2SSO = Slip the next two stitches together knitwise, knit 1, then pass both of the slipped stitches over the knit stitch at the same time. This makes a beautiful, centered double decrease.
