THIS RATING IS ON YOUR PATTERS, NOT ON THE FORMAT THAT MOST ARE PRESENTED. I LOVE the beautiful patterns on your site but I really don't like to do the copy/paste routine in order to have JUST the pattern and not all of the ads and comments, so that I don't waste paper and print cartridges on something I'm going to throw away. It's so much nicer when you offer the choice (rarely, but sometimes) of a printer-friendly pattern or a .pdf. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would prefer a .pdf of the pattern only, without all the extras.

Beautiful patterns
