    I have two suggestions for people who want to print out the instructions. I use a Mac and have a pdf option on print. You can take the pdf and just print the pages you want.
    The other is to take a screen shot of the written portion of the pattern and maybe one picture. Print the screen shot. You can also take screen shots off the pdf and store the pattern for pictures.
    Hope this helps.

    I too am interested in printing the pattern for easier use. Unfortunately when print is selected is includes a lot of photos on each, which do not add any value and use up the printer ink too rapidly. As a gold club member, being able to print the pattern was understood when access so many patterns. I knit on the go and only have my phone with me, which is too small to be helpful. Very disappointing.
