Frequently Asked Questions

How do I download my pattern?


You will see a link to the PDF on the Order Confirmation page on your computer screen just after checking out.  A link to the PDF will also be emailed to you.  Depending on your email provider, the email may be re-routed to clutter or junk email folders, so please check these folders if it doesn't appear in your inbox.  If you do not see the link or email, please email me using the button at the bottom of this page.  

The suggested yarn in the pattern is no longer available. Where can I find a good substitution?

YarnSub is a great site to find alternate yarns.  Enter a yarn in the search box and the site will scan yarns for the same fiber content, weight, qualities, gauge and more.  

What happens to the balance on my gift card if I only purchase one pattern?

Your balance will be recognized and automatically calculated with each purchase.  When you return in the future to purchase your next pattern, enter the same gift card number.  If your purchase exceeds the balance on your gift card, the remaining available funds on the gift card will be deducted from the total due on the check-out screen, and you can enter a credit card for the remaining balance due.

Do gift cards expire?


Can gift cards be used on merchandise as well?

Why can't I purchase merchandise and patterns in one transaction?
Since different shipping methods are required for merchandise and patterns, they must be purchased separately.   All patterns will be delivered by a link to the downloadable PDF.  Merchandise will be shipped to your address and an additional shipping charge applies, which is why these orders must be separate. 

What is the shipping cost for merchandise?
Shipping costs are $4.50 and items are shipping via United States Postal Service First Class Mail. Tracking numbers are provided.  

When do items ship?
Most orders ship the same day, or within 24 hours.  

Do you ship merchandise outside of the United States?
Addresses must be a U.S. address in one of the 50 states.
