I too, am a visual learner. I love illustrations. And I suppose I am also an audio learner, since I tend to understand directions better when I read them aloud.

My biggest pet peeve is the omission of one very important distinction in many patterns or directions. That distinction is the 'finished' or 'unfinished' size of a block.
THIS....my biggest peeve too....when I was a pattern tester it was the #1 thing I always included in my direction remarks..I miss pattern testing...so many need use them today!

For now, I may stick to a certain pattern until I am comfortable with it. You all have been great at chiming in with your thoughts!
