        TemariKai 2014 brings a revamped Pattern and Design listing; patterns are now cataloged by division. A difficulty level is indicated with each pattern: Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced. Any level may be further defined as Acc/Accomplished. Within a division listing, organization is mostly chronological; there is a search box (below) limited to pattern, and you can also access the Site Map. Page 1 of each division contains the patterns collected through 2013, edited over from the old site. Pages 2 and onward contain new patterns added to Temarikai 2014.
