That’s the theorem

I didn’t take my instructions with me while Richard was doing the driving to the Temple Saturday; how hard could it be? 6/6, 5/1/1/5, 4/2/2/4, 3/3/3/3, 4/2/2/1, 5/1/1/5, 6/6 and on again in reverse, knit purl combinations across the rows.

Which is why I only did one set of 6/6 before going merrily on to the next 5/1/1/5. I skipped two rows at the very first color change. It’s making squat squares instead of elongated ones.

Which is why I have enough yarn to finish one complete pattern of what would otherwise be 28 rows to do Barbara Walker’s Pythagorean pattern. I come up with a little extra yarn rather than just, just, just horribly short of what is most likely not dyelot-matchable.

It works! (Phew!)

Clear as mud, but I’m glad you found a solution that works! 😉

I’m glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t get it, but I have an excuse.

lol! I am sure I’ll need a chart for that! Sounds lovely!

Yay for theoretical calculations matching empirical application! And yay! for catching up on blog posts while I was out of town on business, then knitting, then family. I am glad to read that you are doing well. But you do realize you’ve gone over a week without discussing hawks? Maybe you are a bit under the weather? 🙂

Just thinking about it makes me feel dizzy.
