How do you hop?

Growing up, I never thought twice about the hopscotch pattern. At the local schools it was drawn as depicted under "A" below. Isn't that how everyone does it?

Flash forward to reading blog posts as an adult. Design "B" is clearly illustrated in (Ottawa) Andrea's post How to play hopscotch. A quick and by no means complete survey of children's toys revealed design "C."

What are the cultural and geographic variations for drawing a hopscotch board? Drop me a comment ... which pattern is familiar to you and where do you live?

A looks like the version I used when I was little.

Kristin: Aha! Between the Doodle blog and here that's 3 votes for A (not including mine) and one for C. Approx where did you grow up?
