German embroidery pattern 1535

Embroidery chart by Christian Egenolff. 1535. Germany. The Met Museum accession number: 33.69(4r)

I'm not sure where I'd use this design. The width may work for both collar and cuffs for a landsknecht shirt. I'm not overly taken with the design but it does remind me of some of the beautiful mumluk patterns.
