  1. Beautiful Isela. You do such great work. What a neat idea to have edges that will also cover the ears. The way the weather is starting off, sure it will come in handy. Really pretty!!!

  2. Kim,

    if you look underneath the post (before the comments), where it says “share this post,” there are a bunch of icons after that phrase. The last or next to the last icon should look like a printer icon.

    Click that icon and it will pull up a “print friendly” window with this pattern. Then Click on the PDF icon, second from the left on the top. That will generate another window and, once generated, you can click “download pdf.”

    That will download a printer friendly (without all the sidebar stuff) pdf of this pattern or any of the patterns on this blog.
