This is very beautiful indeed. I wish it was in a Pdt format also so I can save on my kindlefire.

There is a "download PDF reader" ad on these pages, or you can Google "print to PDF" for a list of them. Choose "printable version" from the pattern page, but download it as a PDF instead of printing it.

I have downloaded the free PDF reader, but unless the project is "saved" in my computer, I cannot convert it to PDF. And since it is a web page, it doesn't seem to save where this program will convert it. Am I doing something incorrect? Thanks. LK

Thank you for your response - but I'm looking for the actual layout of the squares & triangles.

You are right about the number of squares in the rows. The triangles are above the 1 st row, the top edge of the shawl.
