Getting Started - Printing These patterns are sized for 8.5x11 letter sized paper. When printing this pattern, print actual size. Do not scale to fit. If you get a notice saying some clipping may occur, simply ignore it. TIP: For sturdy pattern pieces, print on cardstock. Cover the back of the paper with duct tape and cut the pattern out as you normally would. Your pattern pieces will be thick enough to trace easily while also being resilient to water damage and tearing.

Scaling your Pattern If you would like to scale your pattern, you can do so quickly and easily using Adobe Reader which is a free program. You will need to increase the size and amount of materials to compensate. Click on the “Poster” box. Enter the scale you would like. 100% will print it at the normal size, 200% will double the size. Overlap will determine how much each tile overlaps the ones nest to it. Enter 0 for no overlap. Selecting Cut Marks will add guides to each page to help trim the overlap. Selecting labels will add a file name and page number to each page printer to help arrange pages in the correct order. Before printing, double check to make sure you are only printing the pattern in this manner and not the entire set of instructions. If you are currently viewing the pattern, select “current page”. Otherwise, you can manually select the page you would like. Generally, this is page 3.
