THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the apple and pear, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 3 pages and written in English. The pears in the photos are all knitted from the same pattern, just in different yarns/colours.
