If I'm understanding you correctly, the part of your project that you're struggling with is making your pattern into a PDF - right? I might be able to help with that. A few questions: Do you already have the pattern in your computer in another format (i.e. Word, Pages, etc.)? Do you use a Windows computer or a Mac computer?
caitcreates thank you for the reply! I'm working in Pages on my Mac. That program seems to agree with me! Basically, I have all the info for several projects that will become PDF patterns. I can get them into the PDF form, just wrestling with layout, block diagrams, wording.
I have been wondering how others put their PDF patterns together. What tools/programs they use or any advice at all for a new pattern maker wanna be!
