    Hi Mary
    If you are on my website – then you will not be able to ‘download’ my patterns via the site. Only if they are available to purchase in PDF format, then you can buy them and download them from Ravelry. But with free patterns like this one currently – you can either ‘Right Click’ and print or save to your own PC. Or you can use the Print/PDF green button at the bottom of the pattern. But I do not have any applications on my website that changes your homepage.
    Thank you 🙂

  3. I don’t like to download then it changes my home page…..cookies not keen of, how else can the patterns be had. Thank You. M. Parron
