If you have Word on your computer, copy and paste the photo and instructions then you can print it easily. I have Word Perfect on my computer and I do this all the time as some patterns just won't print from the site. Hope this helps.

Tried twice to print this great pattern and had no luck. Five pages of nothing. Can someone give me some direction on what the secret is. Thanks

I click on pattern and the instruction only have 5 rows -- there's got to be more than 5 rows to get 50 inches long???

Well, finally got it printed. Not PDF, and it took 5 pages to get it done. Never did get to the web site of the directions given, no other links, nothing! Guess I'll glue the directions together to get one page.


Beautiful pattern, but I can not download it. Can someone help me?


Looks fun,anxious to try this one ,hope I can do justice. to the Afghan.

I can not understand row 2 to save my life, I took it to a friend who is more than knowledgable and does not comprehend the * ** in row 2. I really would like to make this for my great great niece who will be born in March. If somebody can explan it more clearly for me, I would appreciate it!!!!!!

I'm so glad my local librarian got me on to the alternative of using Mozilla Firefox. I use the pc's at her library and it's made all the difference when I could not download a pattern, for whatever reason, using Internet Explorer. Do try that when you have a problem with downloading.
