Leave a comment. Hi! I have just joined the site and I already love it . One problem is I can't find the place to click save pattern, Please help me figure this out Thank you..

you are overreacting - there is nothing to download as the pattern is right there on the website, easily visible and nothing to download. The pattern is free and readily available It also offers another type of stitch - lots of fun thanks again to

This pattern was impossible to download, copy or print. Everytime I tried to download it I ended up with a lot of crap and no pattern. Stop advertising something for free when it isn't.

Hi there, puzzlme! The problem is likely your computer. Have you tried clearing all of your cookies and refreshing the page? Is all of your software up to date? There is no download, rather the pattern is hosted directly on the site. A really easy way to print is to copy the pattern, paste it into a Word document, and print from there. I hope this helps! Happy knitting! -The Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Thanks for the reply. I'm really looking forward to knitting this. It should be perfect for the warm summer months. )

What does 'dropping the yarn overs mean'? I'm guessing it means slipping them from the left needle without knitting them? I'm thinking that's how you get that sort of striped effect between the rows but actually I'm clueless and I'm a fairly experienced knitter. ) Would love to try the pattern.

Hey there! You are completely right. Dropping the yarn overs means pushing them off of the left needle and doing nothing else to them. It gives a really cool effect. I'm actually working on a scarf similar to this one right now that uses the same technique! I hope that helps, and happy knitting!
