I think that the link that tries to force you to install another pdf reader is ridiculous. Won't look at that pattern.

What do I need to do to get the pattern?

The download involves another site installing a .pdf manager on your computer - not worth the trouble - I only want the pattern, not a bunch of ads and tracking stuff on my computer.

I was able to download pattern. (I turned down the sound on my computer.) The print was so small that I copied it and saved it to a word processing document. Row 2 gives instructions for all even numbered rows.
