Just Won't Print - or - Printing is Small -> what happened? Here are three things you need to do to print:

1. OPEN - your PDF with Adobe. is free to download worldwide.

2. HARDWARE - Most are able to download to their smartphones but it all depends on your own personal hardware. Don't see a DOWNLOAD BUTTON?
That means your hardware (phone or tablet) might be outdated for this function. You need to USE A LAPTOP TO DOWNLOAD.

3. YOUR PRINTER SETTINGS - Make sure your own computer is set to print at FULL SCREEN/SCALE-TO-FIT-MEDIA.

😊 MY MOTTO: When you want to show someone you care – you crochet, craft, or knit it! Even if it is for yourself!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a refund for my PDF Pattern?

No, due to the nature of digital files, there are NO returns, exchanges, or cancellations. All sales are final.

What YARN do I use?

Vintage Beso specializes in Vintage Patterns; therefore, vintage yarn does not usually exist anymore. I do not give yarn recommendations to this crucial decision.

Once you purchase the pattern, you can research that based on the information provided in the pattern. Some clues to look for are the descriptive words and ply, for example, 2-ply or 4-ply.

Now, all that being said - I do give an Exclusive Supplemental Gift with tons of info but that does not mean that it has the specific info you are looking for.

*Modern equivalent yarns need to be researched as most vintage yarns were manufactured by the companies who created the patterns and no longer exist.*

Just Won't Print - or - Printing is Small -> what happened?

Here are two things you need to do to print:

1. Open your PDF with Adobe. is free to download worldwide.

2. Then, must print off of a larger piece of hardware - meaning a laptop -----> not a phone.

VintageBeso specializes in LARGE print.

2. but IS AVAILABLE on laptops. :)

Can’t wait to try this pattern! It’s a good winter project

I love this pattern and it was nicely typed and easy to read. I used yarn that was thinner than the original but I was able to figure out the amount of stitches based on the length of the first chain in inches. I changed the collar a bit and added the dark green stitches at the bottom. I haven't decided if I will add the fringe or not. Will definitely buy from this seller again. :)

Fabulous! Thank you. Pattern is easy to read, quick and easy to access. Can't wait to get started. Thank you so much for making these wonderful vintage patterns easy to access.

Not happy with pattern. All sorts of color overlays which make it more difficult to read the pattern. Also had to use my color ink to print, which is a lot more expensive than B&W
