PRINTING YOUR CUSTOM-FIT PDF PATTERNS AT HOME: WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS EACH AND EVERY TIME THAT YOU PRINT A PATTERN. THIS WILL ENSURE THAT THE SCALE IS PERFECT. To print your pattern, you will need ADOBE PDF READER. If you do not have this software please download the latest version from http://get.adobe.com/reader/ Please print the Calibration Test Page before printing your patterns. You can find the Calibration Test Page as the last page of your pattern. The Test Page will ensure that you are printing your patterns at the correct scale. Please measure the 10x10cm box. It must measure exactly 10x10cm for the pattern to fit correctly.

3. Set PAGE SCALING to None (Print Actual Size) or turn it off. Forgetting to do this will drastically change the scale of your pattern. 4. Turn on AUTO-ROTATE AND CENTER.
