Second of all, these little lovely "mail order" patterns were generally designed for the at-home-mom (who most women were back then) who was learning to crochet on her own....sooooo, they have everything you need in each pattern: explanation of gauge, example of stitches, how to do fringe, etc.!

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.*

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.

WHERE do I enter COUPON CODE for discount?

1. Coupon Code ENTRY is NOT available on phones

2. but IS AVAILABLE on laptops. :)

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

Received download immediately after purchase was made. Have not used the pattern, the 4 stars are for the watermark all over the pattern which make it difficult to read. Understand the seller needs to protect her merchandise, a lighter color would make it easier to read and still offer protection. The watermark used on the written instructions are just like the watermark on the item photo. This is the first pattern I purchased with a watermark. A photo of the written instructions with the watermark would be nice for buyers to see before purchasing.

WOW! Such stunning vintage crochet cape pattern!!! Very easy to follow instructions to crochet beautiful stylish cape for a special occasion or casual warm cape! I thank you for this versatile crochet pattern! With appreciation
