There are a number of these types of listings, for downloadable patterns.

What's the verdict? Book or not? I tend to NAB.

Be careful; some pattern-books have a lot more than patterns in them.

MissJessie | 874 comments The ones I am referring to are literally downloadable patterns for knitting, or other things (mainly knitting). You know, knit one, purl two.

There are tons of those available on the web, and IMO a single downloadable pattern itself is NAB, but actual books with multiple patterns, pictures and prose inside would definitely be "book" - just wanted to be clear about the distinctions (I read/review/add-into-GR a lot of those pattern-books).

MissJessie | 874 comments No no I am just talking about patterns not books :) I add pattern books (for quilting, for example) myself.
