    I love this pattern but when I try to print it out, it is so small I couldn’t read it. How can I print it bigger. Jeanne

    double click on the pattern directions
    look up at the top on the toolbar
    look for “page”
    click on the little arrow just to the right of the page button
    an menu should drop down
    look for “ZOOM”
    click zoom
    change the zoom to 200.

    You should be all set.
    You can go higher if need be.

    I just got a look at your scan of Corn on the Cob, for myself I decided to blow it up as big as necessary in a paint program so I could make a better copy. You’re welcome to a copy of it. If you’re interested in it I can create a PDF of the whole thing picture included. Just let me know. And thanks for posting the pattern.


    • Hi my names Pauline, just seen the blog for the cob corn pattern you said you had a copy would you mind sending me one as i have tried to copy it as well and can’t get it to work .
      I’m trying to get a few patterns to try at our Community Cottage where I volunteer for our craft group. Nice and simple as I have a few Chinese ladies who come to the cottage.
      We’re trying to get some wool together as we are in a very poor area. We are The Waltham Community Cottage

      Many thanks Pauline

    Katknit- its really no problem, I just thought hey, why not share this, as I’m sure there are readers with less than perfect eyesight that would struggle with thoes instructions. The only problem IS… my ignorance as to how to up load this PDF file to you. Feel free to email me directly if necessary or clue me in to an alternative please. (And you’re very welcome to this, my hope is that it will help at least one person.) OH, one last thing.. I’d sure appreciate you proof reading aginst the original, just incase i made a mistake.. Some parts were really sketchy and hard to read.
