ONE
EIGHT
FIFTEEN
TWENTY TWO
TWENTY FIVE
THIRTY
SIXTEEN
NINETEEN
TWENTY SIX
TWENTY FOUR
TWENTY SIX ...

where TWENTY SIX continues to alternate with TWENTY FOUR.

However, if hyphens are used and counted as a stroke:

ONE
EIGHT
FIFTEEN
TWENTY-TWO
TWENTY-SIX
TWENTY-FIVE
THIRTY-ONE
TWENTY-FIVE ...

and if I's are written without serifs and G's with only two strokes--the curve and the horizontal bar:

ONE
EIGHT
THIRTEEN
TWENTY-THREE
THIRTY-FIVE
TWENTY-SEVEN
THIRTY-THREE
THIRTY-TWO
TWENTY-THREE ...

the ellipsis now encompassing a cycle of 5 numbers.
