How do I place an Order?

Head to the pattern shop, choose a pattern you like, add it to the cart and checkout using paypal. A link to your pattern download is included in your invoice immediately after payment is processed.

Why is the test square not the correct size?

In order to ensure your digital pattern is printing at the correct size, always print just the PDF page with the test square before printing the entire pattern. The test square should measure 10cm (100mm)

By default, many applications will scale down the pages in your digital pattern PDF when printing. Before you print, check your print setup options and make sure that scaling is set to “100%” or “None”, depending on how the option is worded. Do not select ‘Fit to Page’
