salmonmac, that's pretty. When I searched the striped part threw me because the OP mentions blocks but the pattern is worked in blocks. Seems I learn something new every day here, today's lesson is not to take too much for granted! Thanks for posting the link. I'm not sure I'd use that yarn but I think that pattern could be adjusted to just about any yarn. It might be just what I've been thinking about doing even.
I should never overestimate my basic arithmetic skills.
