Using a custom pattern from

The yoke looked too small but thankfully I joined the Zoom call with Frank and he assured me this it will be fine.

I started the first brown 3-row stripe but have stripe 5 I began to worry I would have enough green yarn. I had phone call with Kelly (1hundredproject) and decided to use the Fibonacci sequence for stripes (1,2,3,5,8,13…) with 6 rows of green separating the stripes. I have included a photo of my stripe sequence.

Ben tried on the sweater and my concerns were confirmed…the sweater is way too small.

3/14 I remembered I have a copy of Karen Alfke’s Unpatterns for Top Down Raglan Pullovers. I did the math yesterday and cast on this morning. So far, so good.
