Får man virka dessa o sälja?

Ik druk dit patroon af en dat is meteen 4 bladzijden terwijl dit ook op 2 pagina's zou kunnen! Dit vind ik heel spijtig vanwege de inkt en papierverspilling! Er is dan ook nog een blad bij met een grote gekleurde foto van de opruiming, waar ik helemaal niets kan mee doen!Kan het niet zo dat als je kiest om af te drukken dat dit automatisch zo zuinig mogelijk gebeurt?

Hoi Chris. Om de patronen gratis aan te bieden zijn we afhankelijk van de verkoop van de garens - daarom zijn advertenties een vaste en zeer belangrijke onderdeel van onze website. Maar je kan natuurlijk altijd kiezen in de print instellingen welke en hoeveel pagina's je wilt printen.
