Patterns file Details:
Download the zip file to your computer. Extract the zip file and open the print-at-home PDF files in Adobe Reader for printing at home. Make sure you uncheck the “save ink/toner” setting, otherwise the lines may not print correctly. Print at 100%, no scaling.
This pattern includes Layers, which means you can “turn on” the sizes you wish to print and “turn off” the sizes you don’t need. If you have never used layers before, open the pdf pattern file in Adobe Reader and expand the menu on the left side of the page. Click on the Layers icon. You should see a list of sizes. By default, all sizes are “turned on.” Deselect any sizes you don’t wish to print.
Print the first page that includes the 2”/4 cm square and check to make sure the square has printed accurately with no scaling. Once you have printed the pages, trim off the outer border and assemble the pattern by numbers. The pages print out from left to right, top to bottom. Match the pattern pieces together as closely as possible, taping the pages as you assemble the pattern.
