When I think about enlarging a pattern, my first thought it to run down to the copy shop. But what happens if the copy shop is closed? CraftStylish shares a downloadable project sheet showing how to enlarge a pattern without using a photocopier. They also point out a couple of good reasons why a photocopier may not be the best option for enlarging a pattern. First, enlarging a pattern often creates shapes that are bigger than a standard paper size. Second, enlarging a pattern with a photocopier can distort sizes due to the pattern lines themselves getting enlarged. Get the tutorial.
