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. :)

Fantastic Pattern! Fast Delivery! Excellent Seller!

Just purchased this pattern. I make afghans and sell the finished product on Etsy so I buy a LOT of patterns. This pattern is well written, very clear and thorough. Most of the patterns I use are scanned from vintage patterns and are hard to follow. This one is a treat. As soon as I have the time, I will work up an American Afghan. Thanks to VintageBeso!
