Counting Colours

by Mrs Mary Kierstead

If I knit 2 rows in dark yarn and 2 rows in light yarn alternately for 278 rows, what should row 278 be light or dark?

YOUR ANSWER


Seriously? Is this someone's math homework?

Dark.

2 x dark plus 2 x light = 4. Divide total number of rows by 4. If it is a whole number the last row will be light.

If it is not a whole number (ie 69.5 as in this case) it will be dark.
