This is my first pattern online purchase. I followed the instruction to print the test square first to measure accuracy. I did that, but there is no instruction on what to do if your square is not 4 inches/10 cm.

What do I do?

Thanks.

    When printing it out, you have to be sure that it isn’t printing “fit to page” or scaled down. What you can do is either check “actual size” or set the scale to 100%. If you don’t want to waste paper and ink, you can print out the page with the test square first and check if it’s the right size.

    Oh thank you! I had not noticed it was set that way!
