Question:  I can see the pattern pages but they print doll size.  How can I scale them up to print on my home printer?  Answer:  The A0 size pattern pages are meant to be printed on large format printers.  However they can be printed the correct size on a small home printer by Adobe Acrobat Reader by using the poster option.  Here is a link to instructions on how to use this option on the Adobe help page.
