4. Now that you’ve got the grade measurements you need, you can start with the grid you will need to grade the pattern. On your pattern paper, draw two lines that intersect at a right angle, with lots of room to fit your pattern piece to the left and above this intersection. Mark the intersection with a 0. This will match the 0 point on your pattern piece, illustrated in the previous step. The vertical line will be the center front. The pattern is graded by tracing around clockwise from the zero point, until you reach the 0 point again.
