TIP For Enlarging a Small Pattern

In a time before copy machines that reduced and enlarged, I was taught this technique to enlarge a pattern.  Notice the smaller drawing of the wolf head, inside the larger pattern.  I actually traced this small pattern from the screen of my computer.  Next you just redraw the larger pattern outside the lines of the smaller one.  This is done by drawing the larger outlines parallel to the outlines of the smaller drawing.  With a little practice you can get quite accurate results.
