    Love the site…the instruction is clear, and I appreciate the right side and wrong side pictures.  I’d suggest you also include a picture that is a little wider and includes more rows and stitches to give a better idea of how the pattern works out over a larger swath of fabric.
     
    Otherwise, thanks so much for sharing your expertise.
