@Mary M: First, click on the link for the pattern, which should open the pattern in a new window on the FaveCrafts website. Once you have opened the pattern, use the "print" button towards the top of the page. If you are still having trouble, you can try highlighting the text, right-clicking, copying, and pasting the pattern into a Word document and then printing from there. Hope this helps! -- Editor of AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns
