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.

1. Coupon Code ENTRY is NOT available on phones

2. but IS AVAILABLE on laptops. :)

I had this pattern a long time ago and lost it. It was fun to find on here! Thanks for all the extras!!

The graph is very poorly done as it's extremely difficult to distinguish the outline of the Santa. Then to add to the confusion, the shop's logo is blasted across the graph. I made several of these in the past following the 1970's pattern from a magazine. Unfortunately, I misplaced that pattern. This one is a poor substitute.

I made this pillow in the 1970's and lost it. I think the pattern was in Woman's Day magazine. I have a copy of the pattern but it is old and unreadable. By chance I did a Goggle search and found the pattern. Unbelievable! Made my day!

Another awesome pattern! Thank you for easy to follow patterns that are fun, fashionable and interesting!

I have been looking for this pattern for a long time. I found it in a magazine back in November 1973 and the copy I had was faded. I gave these out as Christmas gifts and everyone loved them. I was happy to find it again! Thank you.
