This week's WWJ Weekly, there is a reader tip to improve pattern line visibility.

FWIW, Thought I'd pass on in case you don't receive the weekly version (it's free).

I have used the red line patterns.  Much easier to follow than the black line.  Many of my pattern lines are made in dark gray shade which is also easy to follow.  I do not do any tracing.  Patterns are computer generated or scanned into computer.  I change the line color before printing the pattern.  And, I still use the black line patterns when I can't change or do not want to take the time to change the line color.

I have also used different colors and red seems to work out the best for me.  Medium grey also works good.  Another thing I found (accidentally) is to )

print in "ink saver" mode - gets rid of all the background grey from the pattern.

(ok, that's my 2 cents worth)

Herb, can't qualify this one.  Maybe someone who is can either confirm or deny it
