– PDF pattern + Printed A0 copy shop (We print out the A0 pattern sheets, but you’ll need to download the digital instructions, as we don’t print these. The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). What is Copy Shop?

Note: In the A0 version, pattern pieces overlap. If you choose copy shop printing, we will send you an extra copy of the pattern sheet so you do not need to trace.
