I have downloaded a HAT pattern for a friend having chemo, the pattern has a 4" x 4" square in the center that is a gage to make sure you print the pattern the correct size, but when I print it out it measures 3 3/4" which will make the hat too small,
what do I have to do to make it print to the correct size,


I would appreciate your help.
thanking you Drinda,

    it needs to be magnified by 1.06666 times or 106.6666%

    the easy way is to go to a photo copying machine and enlarge it by this amount, or 7% bigger (= 107% ).

    On a computer, would convert it to pdf, the print an expanded pdf and print but choose custom scale first
