your patterns are so exciting and inspiring.

Yesterday I saw a pattern for "Beautiful Wedding Shawl" but couldn't get it to print. How can I get this pattern?

When trying to print a pattern, we suggest that you go to the page and highlight the text, then right-click on it. You'll get a window that gives you the option to "copy." Do that, and then paste the text into a word document. You should be able print that document that way. Another option is to highlight exactly what you would like to be printed. Then, select print from your dropdown menu, and change your print range from all to selection. Hope this helps! Kathryn, editor of AllFreeCrochet
