Yarn or a Tale Patterns

Please bear in mind that I'm not a professional designer and that there may be issues with the patterns.  I've knit them all and while they make perfect sense to ME, they may not make perfect sense to you and if experience any trouble at all or have any questions, please EMAIL ME and I'll do my very best to help :)
