Printing and Pattern Pullouts

Click here to download a pdf on how to properly enlarge ebook patterns.

Some of our printed books have large pattern pull-out sections. Since it would be impractical to present these large patterns in the eBook, we break the patterns apart onto single pages. We place a one-inch reference grid on all of the template and pattern pages to ensure you get accurate printouts. In order for templates and pattern pages to print correctly to scale, be sure that your PDF reader is set to print 100% page size (or scaling set to none). Some printers will also try to "fit to page." Be sure that your printer is not scaling your printouts to something other than 100% actual page size. If the Print dialog contains only two pop-up menus and some buttons across the bottom, click the disclosure triangle beside the Printer pop-up menu. Choose Paper Handling from the print options pop-up menu. The Page Scaling dialog box should be set to None. Depending on your viewing application or device, printing desired page may result in multiple printed pages.

When selecting pages to print, please refer to the page number of the file as displayed by the application, not the page number shown on the page itself.

What is a ZIP file?

Are you familiar with those vacuum-sealed storage bags? You can place ten winter sweaters in a special bag, vacuum the air out, and the bag compresses the sweaters to a fraction of the original size, making it much more convenient for shipping or storage. The sweaters are still intact—it's just the air around them that's been removed.

In the computer realm, you can do something similar with documents; that is, documents can be compressed or "zipped" to take up less space on a computer or to send more efficiently in an email. So, to continue the analogy, the ZIP file is like the storage bag and the documents are like the sweaters.

A ZIP file—a file with ".zip" as the file name extension—is one that has compressed or "zipped" documents inside. To utilize a ZIP file, you'll need to (A) download the file onto your computer and then (B) uncompress or "unzip" the file to access the documents inside. It's easy.

1. Download and save the file to your computer using the download link provided (consult the Help section of your Internet browser for downloading instructions specific to your system).

2. Go to the location on your computer where the ZIP file has been placed. Double-click on the ZIP file. A new folder and the now unzipped documents will appear.

That's it! You can now access the documents as needed.

Due to the extremely large file size, a high-speed internet connection is necessary to download the ZIP files on this site.
