The convenience of printable PDF patterns (free or purchased) is that you can download them whenever you like and print them right then and there at your house. But you have to have access to a printer! When my printer is knocked offline for some reason or another, I’m unable to print any patterns. Preethi from WIDI shares a solution you can use in a pinch. She shows how you can trace your patterns directly from your computer screen. I wouldn’t want to try this on a large scale pattern, but for patterns that are just a few pages, this is a good alternative. Go to WIDI to see how to trace patterns from your computer while keeping the correct scale.
