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That means your hardware (phone or tablet) might be outdated for this function.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.

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.

WHERE do I enter COUPON CODE for discount?

2. but IS AVAILABLE on laptops. :)

My mom mentioned this pattern today. Wanted to find it but an auntie or someone had taken it long ago. I found it in two minutes online. Full detail, I’m thinking it’s a copy I’d the original pattern book. She is so grateful! Now she can see what stitches are needed to repair the gorgeous peacock afghan she made decades ago. Wonderful!

Chart for peacock wasn’t in color making it hard to follow and chart wasn’t fully numbered also making it hard to start.

Have not done this one as yet. Looks interesting and challenging. Should be fun.

Love this patter! Thank you for bringing back this fantastic look!
