I love the pattern, but no matter how many ways I try, I can only print the 1st page of the pattern, the other 2 pages just come up with the pictures along the right side. Am very frustrated after wasting 12 sheets of paper.

Hi Anonymous
Why not copy the instructions and paste them into an email or a word document and print that instead?

hi, I need help! I love the pink ribbon pattern, I have worked the first side down to the second ribbon, also worked the 2 bc-k
now I started the reverse order rows 108 to 1, 108 cc is a purl row so the illusion is on the back side and the purl row ends up on the front, what am I doing wrong ?? hope you can help

I need help i have worked the first side down to the second ribbon now i started the reverse order 108 to 1 but it is coming out on the wrong side. Can you give me some suggestions Betty

One of my students figured out how to keep this pattern from coming out in reverse. Here is the info.
Do odd# rows first, then even # rows: example
begin: row 107 Knit
108 Knit & Purl row
105 knit
106 Knit & Purl
103 Knit
104 Knit & Purl
continue in this manner, and your pattern should be correct.

When doing the reverse ribbon, purl instead of knit and knit instead of purl.
108 CC: K16, P3, K16
107 CC: P
106 BC: P16, K3, P16
105 BC: P
104 CC: K15, P5, K15
103 CC: P
Continue like this until row 1. Finish scarf as instructed above.
