Fixed Scale View

The Birthplace of Herbert Hoover, West Branch, Iowa - Grant Wood

A view of the cottage where Herbert Hoover was born (the leftmost of the three white adjoining buildings in the center of the painting -- the two-story house and covered walkway were added by a later owner, and are no longer there). When Hoover became president, it became a popular tourist attraction, and a tour guide stands on the lawn and gestures toward the cottage. Orphaned at 9, Hoover called this place "physical proof of the unbounded opportunity of American life." The hamlet of West Branch is shown from the top of a steep hill on a clear early autumn day. (American Regionalism, 1931)

On this page, the image is shown at a fixed size (stitches are 2 pixels x 2 pixels). This allows you to compare the relative size of different patterns (other pages scale the images by varying amounts so that they fit the page layout).

You can click "Show regular print pages" or "Show large print pages" to show how the pattern is divided into pages for the two print sizes. The page outlines are red, and the page numbers in the chart are also shown in red. (Charts always start on page 3 of the pattern booklet.) The smaller black grid shows the 10 x 10 blocks of stitches within the pattern. These are always the same. The only difference between the large print and regular print patterns is how many stitches fit on a page. Click "No grid" to hide the grid and page lines.

You can change the colors of the page numbers, grid, and page boundaries to colors that show up better against the pattern picture. The page numbers have a shadow which allows them to show up even if the foreground color matches the pattern in a particular area. Choose background color "none" to remove the grid and shadows.

If you would like to print the image without the Scarlet Quince logo, tabs, etc., choose the grid display you want, then click "Printable version". You may need to specify that the background image is to be printed. Here's how to turn background printing on.
