why is the pattern not opening on my iPad / Tablet / Smart phone?
Because our pattern files are downloaded as a .zip file that contains multiple PDF’s, most portable devices lack the ability to read, open and print file contained within a .zip archive. Please download, open and print from a computer.
How do I print my pattern?
Find and open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat, print the file and in the print options dialogue box, please check your print settings to ensure you’re printing the pages at 100%, no page scaling or fit to page. Printers will often slightly reduce the size to better fit the page, but patterns must be printed at the actual size in the PDF document.
When printed out at the correct size, the layout grid should measure 2.5cm or 1” square.
Our patterns are able to be printed on both A4 and US letter sized paper.
