About Patterns: How do I print patterns from your site?

There are two ways to print from this website: You can download a copy of the pattern in Adobe Acrobat Reader PDF format to your computer and then print it, or you can print it directly from your browser. We recommend the former.

Most computers come with Reader installed that allows you to read PDF files. You can download a free copy at

To download a file and print it:
Click on the icon labeled "Download this pattern". These are large files so they may take some time to appear if you are on a dial up connection. Please be patient.

To save a copy to your hard drive, click the icon with the picture of the diskette at the top of the Reader menu (not at the top of your browser). You will see a popup menu where you can choose where to store the file and give it a name. You can call it anything you like, as long as the file extension is .pdf. It's best to pick a name that has only alphabetic and numeric characters, underscores, or dashes.

To print a copy, click the icon with the picture of the printer at the top of the Reader menu. Don't click on the print icon in your browser.

To print from your browser:
In your browser, select the option labeled "File" at the top of the page. On the menu that appears, select "Print". The page should print automatically.

Normally only the part of the page that is the pattern will print, not the menu. If you find the menu is printing also and you don't want it to, you can change this by setting the options in your browser to "print only selected frame."
