I love these patterns. One thing that would be helpful though is a description of the design at the beginning of the pattern... example, this sweater has a yoke of bobbles, etc etc Sometimes it is difficult to see what that designs are in pictures. Thanks so much for the most creative and chic designs anywhere!
