This pattern is printed on 8.5″ × 11″ sheets of plain paper. Do not scale or center pages before printing. Wait until all sheets are printed out before beginning to tape them together. Do not cut out pattern pieces yet— Arrange the sheets on a large, hard, flat surface so that they fit together, matching up like numbers and letters (i.e. 6A to 6A). To tape pattern together, fold under the margin of one piece (6A) and tape right against the line of it’s matching number/letter (6A).
Trace the pattern pieces from the pattern sheet following the lines and markings for the correct size and the correct style (145). (This pattern also includes pattern pieces, lines and markings for style 146 that should be ignored.)
