--a detailed picture section for additional help with join-as-you-go (does NOT need to be printed)
--special stitches, abbreviations and notes to get you through without a problem
--a placement diagram to arrange your colors and make it your own, if you wish
--complete materials list of all 22 colorways of yarn used
