"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!"
"This is not a free pattern, so not sure why it is still featured on an "all free knitting" website."

Wow your friends with a daring new look. The Sinfully Simple Cavewoman Tank is a fun way to let your wild side free. This knit tank top stylishly drapes over one shoulder, making it perfect for warm nights or a night on the town. The simple shape of this top makes it an easy project to tackle. You only need to worry about one shoulder, so neck shaping isnt even on the radar.
