Printing PDF Patterns

Although all systems and printer set-ups are slightly different, here is an example of how to successfully print your PDF patterns.

  1. Make sure you have Adobe Acrobat on your computer. You can download it here from the Adobe website.
  2. After you have downloaded your pattern, open it in Acrobat.
  3. Follow the print dialogue boxes to print.
  4. Important! Actual Size printing must be selected. You can choose to print on paper size 8.5 x 11 in the US or A4 in the EU.
  5. Before printing all of the entire pages, print out just the first page to check for proper scale. You will find a  4″x4″ inch square on the first page. If the square measures correctly you can print the rest of the pages.

Assembling Your Pattern

  1. When the patterns are prepared they are layed out in a grid formation. Each page is labeled with the rows and column so you can put the pages together in the proper order.
  2. Cut the paper borders and tape pattern pages together.  It is important to match the x’s on the corners to get the proper shape and size.
