Making directions bigger

tglovellJanuary 28, 2012

I am trying to print a pattern for a baby blanket, the pattern is done on what looks like graph paper, is there a way that i can enlarge the directions even if I have to print it off on two or three different pages, the graph squares are so small that its going to be really hard to count the stitches, any help would be appreciated. The pattern is the Baby ABC from Crochet N More..

I do that all the time on my home printer/copier. If yours won't let you do that, just take the one you print from the website to Kinkos and tell them what you need to do.

depends on what version of windows you have, what printer you have, whether it's a web-based program or a PDF... but somewhere, you should have a 'print preview' option where you can set margins and magnification...

or when you hit CTRL+P and the print box comes up, look for 'preferences' or 'properties'

if that doesn't work - print it out as is, and then use a copy machine to enlarge it in sections, and then tape it together as you want it : )

beats trying to juggle the pattern, a magnifying glass, AND the project all at the same time!
