I always highlight and copy into a Word or Open Office document. Then I can do whatever it takes to make the pattern fit on one page: remove all the information I don't need, make the margins narrower, remove all the pictures but the most useful one, shrink the size of the picture and set the text to wrap appropriately around it, change to a narrow sans-serif font that uses less ink, and format into two columns. This is usually enough to get most patterns onto one page. However, I know there are knitters out there who are visually impaired who would prefer to enlarge the font to a size they can read without difficulty, so the needs are different for different people. I also print patterns on the back of previously used paper so that each sheet of paper is used twice before it is discarded into the recycling bin.

Hi patty 3056923 - If you are concerned about wasting paper, we suggest that you highlight the portion of the pattern that you would like to print and copy and paste it into a Word document before printing. That way you won't print any of the excess information. Hope this helps! -The editors of AllFreeKnitting

Sorry, but I think your reply really isn't helpful. I think it's reasonable for us to hope/wish/request that you include a "print-friendly" version of the pattern so that folks who do choose to print can get it onto the least number of pages possible without having to rearrange it. Of course that kind of rearranging can be done, but the point is that if you do it as part of the site, then everyone who prints will save paper and ink and the environment. I just think it's a little dismissive to point out the obvious when the reader took the time to try to make an eco-and-customer-friendly suggestion. I also hope that you can add this feature someday; I think it would help to separate your site from the multitudes of such sites where it is typical for the instructions to be parceled out over many pages (which is great for viewing as a tutorial); just not printer-friendly no matter how you slice it.

Hi, Betty. Unfortunately, as the full pattern is located on the designer's website and not on AllFreeKnitting, we have no control over how the pattern prints. Many designers post their patterns on blog sites, and therefore there may often be several comments below from other readers that you of course will not want to print out. As we suggested above, copying and pasting into a Word document may sometimes be your best bet. Another option is to highlight the pattern, go to File>Print, and then click "Selection" instead of "All" under Print Range. Either of these options should help to eliminate unwanted text. Thanks for your input! --Editors of AllFreeKnitting

A lovely bookmark....tempted to try and it says "easy". But please, when you post a pattern, could you try to make it fit most of an 8 & 1/2 X 11 inch piece of paper?! I hate wasting paper and it takes up extra room in my notebook. I try to be as "green" as I can. Thanks. Patty P
