I copy patterns like that but I also do a print screen for the picture and crop it in my paint program. All I do then is to insert the picture into Word before copying and pasting the instructions.

I'd like this as a beach cover-up but not sure I have the patience to work with fine gauge yarn. On another note, I copy patterns into a Word Doc whenever possible so I can change the font size or line spacing to follow more easily. It helps to save as plain text, or the web formatting can make those parts frustrating. I also edit the size changes, leaving only the instructions for the size I'm making.

A garment as light as a spider's cobweb - would be wonderful but with cats in the near vicinity of my knitting, there would be trouble. This would be a perfect top for someone with a sunburn, barely-there clothing.

You can copy the picture and insert it into your Word document. Right click on the picture, select "copy" command, then click into your Word document, right click and select the "paste" command. Be patient, it may take a little time for the paste to load, but it does. Volia!
