New e-Pattern Format!

Do you all know Meg? She is our desktop publishing and layout guru here at the office. She's also a knitter and knit designer! You may remember her introduction via Webletter a couple of months ago.

Anyway, Meg has overhauled our downloadable pattern sheets completely, and I think you'll be pleased. Here's the old pattern format...

Web-Letter patterns

The new layout definitely packs a visual punch! The first thing I noticed were the pictures. Multiple views of the garments give the reader a ton more information, especially useful for those who knit visually. Then there are the color blocks, used to differentiate pattern information from the actual pattern. It breaks up the page and makes getting the information you need easier to acquire in just one glance.

Thanks Meg! And to our readers, thanks again for looking us up. Let us know what you think about the new layout!


  1. LOVE the new format! Much better assembly of information, and I constantly wish for back views when I browse patterns! Good job!

  2. Yes, it is nice to see extra views. But please allow the choice of printing without all the pictures. Those of us on fixed incomes cannot afford to change the color cartridges on our printers so often!

  3. Thank you to the last poster for the wonderful feedback on our e-Patterns...we will certainly keep that suggestion on our short list when considering updates. We love to hear from you!

  4. most any printer will allow you print in black-and-white, or in draft, mode - when you click "Print" the selection screen should come up to let you change the quality/colors etc. before beginning to print.
