How do I download the patterns?

1. Click "Add To Cart" to add the pattern to your shopping cart.

2. When you are ready to complete your purchase, click "Check Out" on the shopping cart page.

3. You will have the choice to log in to an existing account, create an account, or skip account creation and go directly to PayPal to process your payment.

4. After entering payment details (not necessary for free patterns) and confirming your order, you will be redirected to the WhatTheCraft Store. The pattern will now be available to download in your account.

5. A list of all past orders is available under "My Account." Click "VIEW" to see the order details.

6. Click "DOWNLOAD NOW" next to the pattern. A box will appear asking you to Open or Save the file. Save the file to your computer to start the download.

7. When the file is finished downloading, make note of the file type. If it is a .pdf, you should be able to open and print immediately, assuming you have a PDF reader installed (like CutePDF or Adobe Reader). IF THE PATTERN IS A .ZIP, PLEASE CONTINUE READING!

Zip Files:
Some patterns are in zip file format for quicker download times and to avoid file corruption. To open a ZIP file, you will need an archiving program. There are many good free archiving programs. I recommend WinRar for Windows and iZip for Mac.
Install the archiving program, download the pattern, then right-click the pattern file and choose "Extract Here".

Most patterns will have one piece that includes a square that says "MEASURE BEFORE ASSEMBLING PATTERN". Find this piece and measure it to make sure the pattern printed at the correct resolution. (If the pattern contains more than one page, I'd suggest printing just this page and measuring the square before printing the entire pattern.)

If the square does not measure correctly, check your printer settings. The patterns should be printed at 100% size, so when you reprint, uncheck any boxes that say something like "96% actual size" or "Scale to Fit".
