Im making a saddle pad for the cute little mare on the left from the suitability pattern. Has anyone ever seen a symbol like this on a pattern or know what it means???  Huh

These are grainlines marked at 90 degrees. They are marked so that you can either use the cross grain of your fabric or the straight (lengthwise) grain of the fabric.  You only use one arrow for measuring your placement.  This feature allows your to get the best placement of pattern on the fabric, sometimes saving you yardage.
