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

I had made this afghan for my son in 1978. After many years the afghan wore out and I was so delighted to find this exact pattern recently on your site. The directions are very easy to follow and turned out perfectly. It downloaded as soon as I purchased the pattern. Thank you!
