interesting patterns! can't wait to try

I love the fact that you have made it so the directions are not cluttered by the ads. Now, how about a print/pdf button?

I like this design and the color. I like the shade of red because it is really red with the white contrast. The detailed pattern is given to us step by step and written on the front page. Thanks for this.
