Whenever possible, we have provided the patterns on this site full-size and ready for use. Therefore, they need to be printed properly to be able to use them. It’s important that you know and understand your printer’s settings, so that you can fully enjoy the patterns the way they were intended.
Printing patterns full-size is especially important for quilting and sewing projects, or when an item needs to be the exact size indicated in the pattern.
Remember – each printer is different and settings vary widely across different brands. If you have problems printing patterns, or your printer is still scaling down the patterns after reading this material, please refer to your owners’ manual, as the NeedleKnowledge site not provide tech support (I’m not qualified, lol…) . A quick web search for your printer model will also yield information on your equipment.
