Quick question

I’d really appreciate it if you could take a second to weigh in on this, I’m trying to decide whether to change something in the Gretel pattern. It may just be a matter of preference but if most people like one style better than the other I’d like to know. So a or b?
a) p1, (k2, m1, p2) to 3 sts from end, k2, m1, p1.

b) (p1, k2, m1, p1) to end.

Thank you – I love that self publishing allows me to write my patterns in my own style, but sometimes it’s a bit of a vacuum.
