See http://www.burdastyle.com/howtos/show/143 for the burdastyle how-to on blocking out your pattern. This tutorial is meant to be a supplement for those that are technologically challenged, or don't have programs such as Photoshop or Adobe Acrobat.

Note: I am still working on this, in getting more screen shots.

Technique Materials

Computer, scanner, pattern, brain. There is some software required, and I will guide you through the installation in a separate how-to.

    Great! I hope you’ll add some more pictures as promised, for the more visual ones among us.This made me realise I could make a How To on my improvement on the tiling process… cuts up on the time spent gluing the pieces of paper together. But you need a big sheet of paper for it. :-) I’ll do it after exams…

    Thanks so much I had actually commented on the other howto asking about free software and I mentioned The Gimp and also Inkscape which is a Vector Art Illustration program that’s like Illustrator. You saved me some time making this one and beat me to it! Thanks so much, N
