    $\begingroup$ @feelinferrety Much as I would like the chance to use my riddle dupehammer, I think it's valid to post these as two separate puzzles. It's a two-parter: first solve the rebuses to find the words, then find the pattern among the words. (Both need a little editing/retagging though, which I'll do in a second.) $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 31, 2017 at 18:56

1 Answer 1


Is it:

3 missed(left out) 2 caught


3 caught 4 missed(left out)


The first letters create a netting pattern since they're handles they're ignored. If you include the "o" it's 3 missed, 2 caught, if not it's 3 caught, 4 missed. Puzzle
