Thank you! I was working from the original pattern, and am somewhat still a beginner. Was having a terrible time with the original, and found row 19 was not even in there. Could not figure out what it was supposed to be looking like, yet really wanted to make it for a new grandson due in October to go with a vintage looking baby afghan I had completed. So pleased that you reworked it, and had pictures! Thanks again!

Shop policies

Last updated on April 25, 2014
The goal of Patterns ala Carte is to preserve vintage patterns while making them available at an affordable price. All patterns are from sources in the public domain. In some cases I recreate the piece and rewrite the pattern for today's terminology and materials. I'll never be able to knit, sew, crochet or otherwise make everything, so some patterns are simply digital restorations of the original.

Patterns are digital files available as a download from your Purchases page once payment has cleared. In most cases the digital file is 10MB or less. There are no plans at this time to produce hardcopies as it drives the price up too high.

My own passion is for making beaded purses and I welcome special orders! I normally sell the models after I have taken the photos for the pattern, and I experiment with all sorts of techniques, so keep your eyes open for physical items for sale.

My personal goal is to create a library of everything I can find and make it available to you. If there's something you're looking for, or you have a suggestion please email me! I want this to be your resource, not just a collection of things I think are cool.

Payment
I prefer Paypal but am happy to also accept Etsy Gift Cards and Direct Checkout

These are digital items and are available as a PDF download from your Purchases page once payment has cleared.
Shipping
Shipping on patterns is FREE!!!
Anywhere, any country
This is the part I really like about digital files:)
Refunds and Exchanges
It's really difficult to return a digital file, but I understand that sometimes things just don't work out. If you have any concerns or confusion, please email me BEFORE purchasing. If you're not happy with your purchase I'll do everything I can to make it right but please understand that refunds are not possible in most cases.

I do understand that computers crash and sometimes back ups don't happen. I also understand that sometimes computers hide your download and you can't find it.

That being said, if your purchase was more than 12 months ago I can not resend the file to you. I do hope you understand, but I have received a growing number of requests to resend patterns to personal email addresses and it's getting out of hand:)
Additional policies and FAQs
I hold the copyright on my restorations and rewrites. The patterns are intended for your personal use, not for resale. If, however, you want to use the pattern to make the item itself for sale, please go ahead! If you need a bunch of copies for a group or something, again, email me and we'll arrange something.
