I printed out a mask pattern.  There was a line beneath it that said, "This should be   3" .  We'll on my copy it was only 2" .  How do I enlarge the mask based on that measurement?

Increase it on a xerox machine?

I was thinking of trying to enlarge it through our printer.  Xerox is a good idea but not sure there is one locally.  Thank you for suggesting thst!

It all has to do with your printer setting. You need to set the printer to 100% as it is likely set at a less percentage. I printed some online patterns a few weeks ago and once I set the printer to the right setting it all was fine. Do you have the manual for your printer, if not find it online and it should tell you what to do. What is likely happening is that the print project is defaulting to a "fit to page" type of setting.

Thank you!  I think I know how to do that!  I was just about to go look for a pattern that came full-size, but I liked this one I found yesterday.

There are a lot of really good patterns out there. Good luck getting the settings right. Let us know how it goes, love to see a picture of the finished mask as well.

I also use the mask pattern at craftpassion.com. Patterns for 4 sizes. Step by step tutorial and very comfortable.
