How do I open the pattern PDF file ?
If the PDF file doesn’t open automatically when double clicked, your computer might be missing the software necessary to open this type of file. To open the file, install the free download, Adobe Reader.
We recommend that all our customers use Adobe Reader to print out the pattern as it appears in the e-pattern, without altering the scale.
How do I print out the pattern ?
After opening the PDF file using Adobe Reader, click on ‘File’, then ‘Print’. Important – in order to print the pattern at the right size, select, depending on your program version: ‘Page Scaling : None’, or ‘100%’, or ‘Full size’.
If you are using a tablet or laptop computer, we recommend that you print the pattern tiles only, and follow the assembly instructions from the screen.
