Item details

The PDF lets you print a your own black-and-white version of the Knitter's Yarn Information cards:

The front of the card shows the width and WPI of yarn that fall around the middle of
each of the yarn weight ranges. I use this card to identify mystery yarn from my
stash by laying across the lines and eyeballing it to find the closest match.

On the reverse I have summarized, for each yarn weight, the following information from my yarn information table in the In my Yarn Theory Card (
YPP range - a range of yard per pound measurements for the yarn weight
Woolen Ply/Count - a range of measures for the yarn weight,
Stockinette needle size - a typical range of needle sizes where appropriate, in US, UK and metric sizes.

About Printing:

It is important to not let the PDF reader or viewer program resize the cards when printing, because unfortunately different PDF viewers and printer drivers resize documents differently. This is why I included the scale in the PDF. :)

There is usually a "auto fit", "zoom", "page handling" or "page scaling" option in theorinting options, and it's importand to set it to "none".
In the two different pdf readers I have, I set the print option "page scaling" to "None".

If it is set to "shrink to printable area", everything will print smaller than intended. How much smaller things are printed depends on the program, the printer used, and the print settings.

This is so great. You can make your own control cards for when you are on the road, or just to have with each project. Easy to download and has a control mark on the printout to verify you are getting the right sizes on the control lines when you print.
