I posted two FREE knitting patterns for Kindle for today...grab them before they're gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)

Hi, thanks for asking!  Smile

While I'm no technical expert, it sounds to me like your pattern is quite large.  The larger a pattern is, the more pages you'll have.  Also, the problem with downsizing something way down onto one or two pages is when you go to print it, it will be too small and difficult (and perhaps impossible) to read.  That's why, as you've noticed, PDFs are split into many pages, rather than placed on only 1 or 1-2 pages.

Offhand, I would say that if you want to generate a smaller pattern, perhaps try reducing the number of stitches.  The tradeoff there, however, is you may end up losing too much detail.  This is entirely dependent on the photo or artwork you're using.

Hope that helps!  Smile

Wendy,

Hi, the Filet Crochet option is currently not available.  I'll let Terry (Support) know about that, as the more requests he gets for something, the higher it goes on his priority list.  Smile  As we're always improving and adding to the Free Pattern Wizard, we want to have as many options available as possible!  Smile
