When printing these patterns the print is so small I need a magnifying glass to read them. I set my printer for 8x10 paper & print to page & the printing is still very tiny. What am I doing wrong? I really like this pattern & want to make some to give to our local hospital's Auxilliary Store to sell for Christmas.

I'm trying to figure out if there is a mistake in this pattern: when I get to round 1 for increase for points I have 54 stitches, the pattern says to inc, sc in next 16 sc, inc 3 times the problem is I only end up with 51 stitches not 60 like the pattern says, when I do the math 16x3=48 stitches, 3 increases is only adding 3 more stitches which = 51 stitches not 60 also, I find it unusual to inc at the beginning and the end of the round. What am I not seeing?

I'd like this pattern using a LOOM. Also need an elf hat. Please help! Caroline
