Thank heaven for the ability to enlarge pictures on my iPad! And for the other project on Rav that let me clearly see it's a tam.

I could be wrong, but with a 90 stitch cast on, a multiple of 4 for the reversible lace rib doesn't work mathematically, but a multiple of 5 or 10 could. Not knowing how the designer planned the increases, then the decreases for the tam, I figured sticking with a rib that accommodates the number of stitches in the cast on might be the easiest work around if the stitch count for the cast on is accurate in the pattern.

It's also equally likely that the cast on for the larger size was miscounted and should really be be 88. Like I've never done that before...
