Hard to read the pattern

Hi, I also love CrochetToday! I'm attempting to make the Beachcomber Shawl, however, the print on my copy got off set somehow. Everytime I try to read the pattern it gives me a headache. :o( It's like the letters are just slightly blurred or something. Is there any way that I can get a PDF of this pattern or something? I do have a subscription to the magazine. Not real sure how to prove that though.

Pattern torn in magazine

I subscribe to your excellent periodical, but this issue was somehow damaged and took the middle out of the instructions, how can I getthe complete instructions?
