Hi sgarrett45 8191768 - You do not need a subscription to print any of the patterns on AllFreeKnitting. Simply click on the pattern you are interested in and it will take you to that pattern page. There you will find a link that will take you to the actual pattern that you can then print out. Was there a particular pattern that you were having trouble with? -The editors of AllFreeKnitting

I thought I would be able to print out the patterns, but I see that I have to order and start a subscription. This ad was very misleading and I am really disappointed.

That is not true, where are you all getting these ideas? Here's the link to the blue and white afghan: http://www.freevintageknitting.com/afghan-patterns/columbia-minerva-742/blue-and-white-afghan

This is a year later...however you do not need a subscription or buy anything....these patterns are free. Just follow the instructions on how to get them. It's basically clicking on the pattern and copy and paste.
