I like this pattern all right, but I had a lot of problems with it too.
1. I thought the "shadowed" lower left colour was too dark, though that might just be me.
2. The PDF wasn't easily readable. It easily could have been fit onto a single page instead of 2, and it was difficult to differentiate symbols when printed on a black-and-white printer because it all came out in grey scale.
3. The pattern does NOT fit into a 4" hoop as advertised. It's oblong, taller than it is wide, so the top and bottom got covered by the hoop and there was extra space on the sides.
I like the pattern in general, but disappointed with final product, especially for its relatively hefty price compared to other patterns.
