      Hello! Yes, you should be able to click the green printer icon on the left hand side of the screen to print the pattern. Please let us know if you run into any issues. Thanks and happy knitting! – Nicola

    There appears to be a mistake in the pattern. The pattern repeat does not add up to 42 stitches. The pattern is missing stitches – 4 knit stitches before the repeat pattern and 4 stitches after the repeat pattern.

      Hi Beth, We’ve reached out to the designer for clarification and she or I will reply as soon as possible. Thanks! – Nicola
