What is more easily understood? (Pattern writing)
I'm writing a pattern and would like your opinions on the way it is written for long repeats.

Choice A: *K3tog, k3, yo, k1, yo, [sk2p, yo]x42, k1, yo, k3, sk2p*
(97x3=291 sts)

Choice B: K3tog, k3, yo, k1, yo, *sk2p, yo; repeat from * around to last 7 sts of repeat, then k1, yo, k3, sk2p.

Thanks, your opinion really counts!
