How to print and use your crochet journal
Here are a few tips to help you make the most of your printable crochet binder:
As detailed in this post on the best paper for planner printables, I recommend using HP 32 lb paper for planners and journals. This paper is sturdier than “normal” printer paper, and is brighter for nicer images. You’ll flip through your crochet binder a lot. Printing on sturdier paper will help it last.
- Made in USA: HP Papers is sourced from renewable forest resources and has achieved production with 0% deforestation in North America.
- Heavyweight premium printing: HP Premium32 is a heavyweight (32 pounds), brighter (100 bright) and whiter (163 whiteness) paper with a super-smooth...
- Certified sustainable: HP Premium32 presentation paper is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified and contributes toward satisfying credit MR1...
Although I generally don’t print entire planners on cardstock because images aren’t as bright and the planner gets bulky, you might want to print the yarn inventory page on cardstock. This page has holes to punch out so you can attach a yarn sample. I personally use the Neenah 90 lb cardstock or the Neenah 110 lb cardstock whenever I need cardstock. You can see both demonstrated in the post on planner paper.
This planner is designed for US letter size, which means it fits perfectly in a regular 3 ring binder. I’ve even carefully designed the page margins so they’re safe for hole punching:
If you like to keep a smaller binder like a half letter sized binder, for your crochet projects, it’s easy to scale these pages down. Simply print at scale and use a paper trimmer to cut away the extra. You don’t even have to do the math because I did it for you in this handy chart:
