My printing paper

This is my paper after I printed it, but I had to do another two steps to make specific rectangles one inch with more bold border around these rectangles to show one inch up, and I will share you this in another post.

Make your own knitter's graph paper

I have made my own knitter's graph paper, and wanted to share all of you this way. As you know that knitter's graph paper has rectangular shape not square shape. Here is my way to make it using "Excel Program" I have used "Microsoft office 2003" , but I think you can apply using any version you have.
There are some websites who speak about how to make your own knitter's paper graph using Excel , but I couldn't follow them, and they don't mentioned to the "print stage" so if you follow them and print the sheet you will get a white paper.
Here is how to make it,
1)open your Excel program

click on this square to select the whole sheet ( the square with red arrow)
 Now all sheet is selected, and be ready to apply your choice to the whole document.
 put your mouse and hold it between cells to define the cells' width
 The red circle tells you when exactly you should to put and hold your mouse
 Here you should to hold your mouse between rows to define the height of the cells ( you should to make them rectangular shape)
you can define the width, and height of cells in another way using "format menu" then you will find "row" "column " and from them you can define your own width and height .

Print knitter's graph paper

You have two options ,
First, To select "All border" from " border" menu. like showing in picture
In case you see this print sheet has a bold borders you can choose the second way which showing in next pictures.
Right click to get this menu (observe that all sheet is selected in this way) to apply your choice on the whole sheet.
 Choose "Border " to get this window
 Choose the border you like and click around all border cells to liable all the cells, and be ready to print.
