"Hi, I can't find the knitting pattern for this book, can I have it please?"
"With the page open, right click on your mouse, this will open a new window, in the new window scroll down to and click on print. That will take you to print review, in print preview change "all" to just the pages that the pattern is on and click print. Using the cut and copy feature to paste the document into another program for printing is actually a violation of international copyright laws, but printing directly from the page is permitted. Hope this helps someone. Happy knitting!"

My daughter crocheted a scrubby for me and I really liked it, but I don't crochet and this is the first knit pattern for one that I have seen. I will be making several of these... and not just for the Fourth of July! By changing the colors, I can make them for any occasion, but I will probably just match my kitchen and use them all the time.
