Throwing Stripes

Ok......so this is a project I first sawMyra knitting on Martha's Vineyard while there last year and I fell in love....so, I had to do it.  Alix of the Vineyard Knitworks shop designed it....simple and lovely.  At first I thought this amount of ribbing would kill me, however, it was very meditative and come to find out, a good way to practice my continental knitting.  The yarn is Cascade Highland Eco Duo, alpaca and merino...fuzzy, fluffy and so soft.  Here's to simplicity....thanks Alix.

Not sure if you got my comment, just dying to make this hrow , but the multiple of 15+8 just doesn't seem to work! Original co 188 adding 23 makes it 211 sts, meaning odd verses even co, why?
