I download most of my patterns off the internet and put them into organized folders. I also have several large binders with lots of page protectors which have also been organized in the same way as my online folders.
As I collect the free patterns from stores or wherever or any patterns from books that I like, I scan them into the computer. As I need a pattern, I print it out.
After printing it, I rename the online file to notate that it has been printed. When I'm finished with it I put it into a page protector in a binder. This way if I want to make the item again, I don't have to reprint it.

I have been doing the same thing for years and now have three 3 ring binders, one is just for knitting patterns! (02/04/2010)
