  3. Hi Zoe, is the pattern only available in L, XL, and XXL?

  4. Hi Zoe, the PDF size is 8.3" x 11.7" - this makes it incredibly difficult to print without resizing and compromising the pattern sizing, could you update the PDF page size to a standard 8.5" x 11"?

    1. Hello, This pattern must be print on A4 100% scale. You cannot use a letter size for this pattern.
