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. Adobe.com 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?

1. Coupon Code ENTRY is NOT available on phones

2. but IS AVAILABLE on laptops. :)

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.
