❤️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.

❤️Downloading is a TECHNICAL function and NOT controlled by this shop. If you need help, here is what Etsy offers:

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.

I did NOT get a download link on my phone, why?

That means your hardware (phone or tablet) might be OUTDATED FOR THIS FUNCTION.

So HOW can you DOWNLOAD?

HARDWARE (is your phone too "old") worked before but not now?
Most are able to download to their smartphones but it all depends on your own personal hardware (phone or tablet). Etsy continually upgrades features and some upgraded features require the newest phones with the most current features. For example, seeing a Download Button, being able to download from phone or tablet, etc.

Will you send PDF Pattern to my Etsy Chat or outside email?

No. You purchased a digital download.

YOU MUST DOWNLOAD yourself because that is like your "RECEIPT" -- meaning it PROVES you received your download.

All communication must stay within Etsy environment.

You must download from your personal account that you made your purchase from so that means that ONLY YOU can access your PDF Instant Download!

What YARN do I use?

Modern equivalent yarns need to be researched. But why? Most vintage yarns were manufactured by the companies who created the patterns and both no longer exist - vintage yarns do not exist anymore.

As you know, yarn choice is a crucial decision - recommendations are not given.

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; what is great is, sometimes 😃Reviewers will actually state the yarn they used! 😃 Whoo-hoo!

Once you purchase the pattern, you can research yarn 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, etc.

Just Won't Print - or - Printing is Small -> what happened?

Here are three things you need to do to print:

Make sure your own computer is set to print at FULL SCREEN/SCALE-TO-FIT-MEDIA.

2. Open your PDF with Adobe. Adobe.com is free to download worldwide.

3. You must PRINT OFF on a larger piece of hardware which means A LAPTOP ---> not a phone or tablet. [READ ABOVE: "I did NOT get a download link on my phone, why?"]

VintageBeso specializes in LARGE print.

Vintage Beso specializes in Vintage Patterns (in CLEAR LARGE PRINT)...what do you mean?

Vintage Patterns are PATTERNS.
Usually one picture and only written instruction.

Vintage Patterns are NOT TUTORIALS.
These Vintage Patterns are what I call "bare-bones"...not the "user-friendly step-by-step-by-step" patterns of today.

Vintage patterns are ORIGINAL PATTERNs FROM ORIGINAL DESIGNERs that were created over 70+ years ago. These are ORIGINAL INSTRUCTIONS that everyone learned crocheting from in the 1970s; but, if you are someone who needs a lot of guidance then THESE PATTERNS ARE NOT FOR YOU.

Still want to try?
I offer extremely low prices so people feel safe to TRY something NEW which is actually VINTAGE. Relax, be easy on yourself, and follow the directions EXACTLY and you will achieve the results shown.

Will my purchase be WATERMARKED?

This tiny Etsy shop only sells WATERMARKED PDF Instant Downloads.

As stated in the shop header. As stated in every individual listing. As shown on all pics.


That means your PDF Instant Download WILL BE WATERMARKED.

What language are the Vintage Patterns in?


What TERMS are the Vintage Patterns in?

Vintage Beso Shop has both U.S.A. and U.K. patterns...ONLY.

Generally, this information can be found on the 1st line of every individual listing.

Also indicated on name of PDF pattern - UK or USA.

VintageBeso specializes in LARGE print. What does that mean?

Vintage patterns were usually printed in small fonts. But why?

Because manufacturers wanted to give their customers the entire pattern in one shot or wanted to give multiple patterns in one shot. So what does that have to do with the font size?

Well, let's say you have one sheet of paper that was printed for the masses only one time...what could the manufacturer do? Shrink! Shrink the font, sometimes to a seriously miniscule size!

That is where I come in! Oh yeah! What do I do?

I ENLARGE the pattern. An entire pattern may originally only be a few inches or half page - may now be five pages long! You will be able to easily read the printed material...per page.

My listings take hours to create to help your ease of enjoyment.
