Comments: I never thought I was someone who memorized patterns - I can't give you the directions for a certain pattern unless I have it in hand, and can work out the next steps by taking cues from the previous row.  Then I started this fir cone swatch...  apparently, 2 months of working on this pattern in this christening shawl (scroll down to the end of the post) was enough to drill it into my brain for ever! :)  And in case you're wondering, I think it looks better in a finer yarn.
