❤️What HARDWARE - Most are able to download to their smartphones but it all depends on your own personal hardware. Obviously, I have no control over your hardware that you are trying to download on but after years of talking to customers the recommendation is to go bigger; for example, not able to download on your smartphone? Then try an iPad, etc., in the end the good 'ole laptop always works.

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.*

Pattern was delivered quickly. Well edited with tips and guide.

Pattern was delivered quickly, but find it very difficult to concentrate on the instructions with all the watermarks. I am a visual learner, and I really can't use these overly watermakred patterns - too distracting for me.

Nice pattern, nice communication,I am a beginner and it's a bit difficult, but I'll try! Best regards!

It is always a pleasure to shop & purchase wonderful vintage patterns from VintageBeso. Their files are beautifully scanned, they download & open easily and are a pleasure to work from. This shop always has something beautiful, unusual and so worth my crafting time to create. I know I'll be back for more : )

I just started this pattern. It is easy to follow. I found a typographical error. On this first page it states "Back", as in starting the back, which is typical. When I looked ahead, after finishing off, it says "work the back like you did the front to row ...." So that's a little confusing, but I think they mean work the front like you did the back. But it is a lovely pattern. I did have to adjust my gauge a little and use a different sized hook to compensate for different yarn. I think the dress will be really nice when it is done. I was am very happy with Beso and have purchased several patters from them. I always have a good experience.
